I've obtained an '05 pretty lot same together yours the holds 26 gallons. If that is a quick bed ns think that the same... Capacity will certainly go up to 34 gallons, probably for lengthy beds and also the HDs. This site has actually the exact same info: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/22634.shtml

Filler neck. And it also depends on how the truck is sitting at the pump. But damned, ns can't think you'd run the truck that empty!



Short and Standard crate = 26 Gallons = $78 in gas

Long crate = 34 Gallons = $102 in gas

 

The watch on my confront when the gas card bill comes in, Priceless

To acquire 26+ gallons in a 26 gallon tank.........

 

most most likely either :

 

- The pump was out of calibration (happens all the time)

 

- your truck was parked on a steep (highly unlikely since most gas station aprons are relatively flat).

 

- you didn't protect against after the automatic nozzle clicked off and also you pumped fuel up her filler neck (not a good dea).

I've never understood your last statement as to why pumping fuel up your filler neck isn't a an excellent idea. If you're walk to go drive, then you aren't yes, really going to shed anything. And it's still gained a vent tube, therefore it's not like you're avoiding it from venting. Besides, ns can always get at the very least 1 more gallon in ~ the automatically nozzle clicks off as result of foaming.

Two reasons for no overfilling fuel tanks :

 

1) The tanks room designed to have a certain volume the vapor space. If you fill the level the the tank over the vent line climate you can have liquid gasoline going right into the vapor cannister(s). The room not designed to contain liquid.

 

In the days before sealed fuel systems and vapor cannisters, if girlfriend overfilled her tank and the tank got hot from sitting over warm pavement, the gasoline would blow the end of the vented cap. Currently the systems are sealed and also the vapor development is taken on by the cannisters. BTDT.

 

2) as well, if you space in one accident and the fuel tank is compressed, the vapor area can compress there is no breaching the tank. With tiny or no vapor area left in the tank come compress, the tank will have no choice but to burst, spraying petrol everywhere.

 

It's a safety worry as well and also an ecological issue.

I never over fill my tank because the vapor condenses in the filler tube and eventually will certainly leak the end onto mine paint.

 

But I discovered this on one Ohio State website...to much more inform us on gasoiline vapor in relation to temperature.

"Flammable (explosive) selection of flammable liquids is the percentage selection of liquid vapor in air, through volume, within which ignition deserve to occur. Gasoline, because that example, has an explosive variety between 1.4% and 7.6%. This suggests that any concentration of petrol vapor in air between these percentage limits will ignite at any kind of temperature above -45F (flash point) as soon as an ignition resource provides a contact temperature in the variety of 500 to 800 F (ignition temperature, escape on kind of gasoline)."

 

Gasoline emits flammable vapor at an unfavorable 45 degrees Farenheit. That's cold!

 

So currently I'm wondering...I have actually a 2004 1500. 5.3 liter and also an 8 foot bed. Once the gas light come on I recently filled mine tank v a tiny over 29 gallons of fuel. Is mine tank 32 gallons? mine dad has actually a 2500HD and also his tank is smaller sized than mine. Ns only gained 379 miles to that tank by the way, I have 20 inch rims so probably my speedo is off?
