    Should call weights and measures and have the pump checked.

    Unless you stalled pulling into the station and had to push your truck to the pump, it was really cold, and your truck leaned slightly to the passenger side which would allow you to fill it beyond the normal neck line :)

    21.1 gallons or 80 liters

    There is another thread where we are trying to see how much gas is in our tank at various quantity lines in our fuel gauges and low fuel warning light.

    So far we figured we have about 2.5 gallons (9.5 liters) left when the gauge is on Empty (right over the line)... down 18.5 gallons from full.

    About 4 gallons (15 liters) left when the E light comes on... down 17 gallons.

    About 8 gallons (30 liters) left when it shows 1/4 tank... down 13 gallons.

    About 11 1/2 gallons (44 liters) left when it shows 1/2 tank... down 9.5 gallons.

    About 16 gallons (60.5 liters) left when it shows 3/4 tank... down 5 gallons from full.

    That's useful. My light came on and I freaked out the first time. I had no idea how much further I'd make it before it quit. Looks like just under 80 miles...

    Wasn't intentional... long trip and wasn't paying attention to the gas guage until the light came on and caught my attention. Its good to know that once your light comes on you're not completely screwed though.

    Here's the othere thread with lot's more research figures... http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/109354-how-many-gallons-your-tank.html

    Here are my latest figures after a half tank fill up today:

    Full to 3/4--------= 5.1* gallons
    3/4 to 1/2------- = 4.0* gallons (9.1 total)
    1/2 to 1/4------- = 4.2* gallons (13.3 total)
    1/4 to E-Light----= 3.5* gallons (16.8 total)
    E-Light to E Line-= 1.7 gallons (18.5 total)
    E Line to Empty--= 2.5 gallons (21.0 total)

    * measured fuel amounts, not estimated


    Oh, and nothing bad will happen if you don't get gas until you are on E... there is still 2.5 gallons in reserve below the E line. I have got gas many times on E in all three of my Tacomas over the past 10 years... Never any fuel problems!
