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

Filler neck. And also it likewise depends on how the van is sitting at the pump. Yet damned, i can't believe you'd operation the truck the 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 map bill come in, Priceless

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

 

most most likely either :

 

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

 

- her truck to be parked top top a slope (highly unlikely since most gas terminal aprons are reasonably flat).

 

- friend didn't avoid after the automatically nozzle clicked off and you pumped fuel up her filler neck (not a good dea).

I've never taken your last statement regarding why pump fuel up her filler neck isn't a an excellent idea. If you're walk to go drive, then you aren't really going to lose anything. And it's still gained a vent tube, therefore it's not choose you're preventing it from venting. Besides, ns can constantly get at least 1 more gallon in ~ the automatic nozzle clicks off due to foaming.

Two reasons for no overfilling fuel tanks :

 

1) The tanks are designed to have actually a specific volume that vapor space. If you fill the level that the tank over the vent line then you can have liquid gasoline going into the vapor cannister(s). The space not designed come contain liquid.

 

In the days prior to sealed fuel systems and also vapor cannisters, if you overfilled her tank and the tank got hot from sitting over warm pavement, the gasoline would blow out of the vented cap. Currently the systems space sealed and also the vapor development is tackled by the cannisters. BTDT.

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

"Flammable (explosive) range of flammable liquids is the percentage selection of liquid vapor in air, by volume, in ~ which ignition have the right to occur. Gasoline, for example, has actually an explosive range between 1.4% and also 7.6%. This suggests that any concentration of petrol vapor in air between these percentage borders will ignite at any kind of temperature over -45F (flash point) when an ignition source provides a contact temperature in the variety of 500 to 800 F (ignition temperature, escape on type of gasoline)."

 

Gasoline emits flammable vapor at negative 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. As soon as the gas light come on I newly filled my tank through a small over 29 gallons that fuel. Is mine tank 32 gallons? my dad has actually a 2500HD and his tank is smaller than mine. Ns only got 379 miles to the tank by the way, I have 20 inch rims so probably my speedo is off?
