2nd Generation How many gallons to fill up?

Question for the gen2 peeps.

How many gallons of gas does it take for you to get a full tank?

the owners manual claims that the tank is 15.9 gallons, but ive never got more than 12.5 gallons in mine.

Also, how many miles can you get out of a tank?

My garage
1991 Nissan Maxima SE V6 5SPD - daily beater - Sold
1988 VW GTI 1.8l 16v - weekend beater - Blown engine
2005 Elantra GT sedan 5spd - Woo, no more beatup cars!

My tank is 15 gallons. I can usually squeeze 16 in for road trips tho for some reason. Gas mileage depends of engine size, mods, and how hard you drive your car. I drive my camry pretty hard and get anywhere from 18-23mpg around town and anywhere from 22-27 highway. I have a 97 camry xle 3.0L V6. Hope that helps.

It ususally takes me about 10-12 gallons to fill up, and I average 31 MPG overall, with mostly city driving.

BTW it's a 1991 3SFE with 76k miles.

2nd Generation

I usually fill up when I have about 1/4 tank remaining. However, for me, I get about 16 mpg city and 19 hwy. The EPA ratings are 18/25, but I've never come close. I think it's because my oxygen sensor is bad.
