Go to AutoTrader

Look for the "used car research," then "compare," and put in year, make, etc....

When it comes up with the featueres list, just view all sections. I'm confident its information is 99% accurate.

"Your in violation of signature rule #4."

Crap.... guess I'll change it later.

Because when the needle is on E there is usually a couple of gallons left. I was only able to put about 12 in our 1990 2nd Gen also.

Edmunds.com confirms the 15.9 gallon capacity

So you can go a bit further, but you have to drive with the needle solidly on E and the low fuel warning light shining in your face, which most people won't be comfortable doing.

I think it might hold about 300 or so gallons.


Course you would have to make sure the windows are rolled up and the doors sealed.

i get over 800km/tank on the highway in my gen 3 before the gas light comes on, of course i have a 5 speed stick but in the city i usually try to get around 600-650
