Fuel tank size(s)

Recommended Posts

Rogan

My '96 SCLB held ~34gal of fuel. My '01 QCSB, on a totally empty tank, only held ~25-26gal.I've read so many conflicting bits of info on tank sizes for the RAMs, that I'm not sure which to believe? Do any of you have any hard numbers that a man can take belief in?I've read all have 34gal tanks, 8' beds have 34gal, 6.5' beds have 26, 6.5' beds have 34, 8' beds have 44 (wtf? ) and so on.What do you guys have?

when I accidentally ran out my QCSB, I put 5g in it by can, then drove to the station, and put 21 more in it, so it's around 26gal..

when i fill up i usually pump 26gallons. that is usually as the fuel light comes on at a 1/8th tank. i have never recorded a 600mile trip odometer, but have got 21MPG had calculated. i have read a lot about fuel gauges being off, and have always attributed it to that. i can drive 100+ miles while the needle is on FULL line, but goes way fast below 1/2 tank.

I usually fill up at 1/4 tank and it holds 25 gallons or so. The most I have gotten in was 27 gallons and my best hand calculated mileage was 17.9. My 98 longbed measure 66 in long by 11 inches wide by 17 tall.

Pretty much sums up every Dodge Ram I have owned as far as the 25 gallons to fill at 1/4 tank mark. be it the 2 gassers I had or the 2 diesels I currently own. The top half of the tank is always way bigger than the bottom half. usually get 300 miles at half tank mark and about 150 miles from half tank to empty.:stuned:

I can't get 300 out of a tank, let alone 1/2 tank!

I'll measure mine here in a few... The fuel tank, I mean.

so every mark is little over 8 gallons.:smart:

actually i think each mark is about 4 gallons or so, if you count the 1/8 tank between each 1/4

The gauges are about as inaccurate as they get. I mean when they are on F they are full and E they are empty but in between, who knows. I've gone up to 200 miles with it on the F, then have it seemingly fly down to 1/2, stay there for 200 miles, then fly down to 1/4 and finally slowly drain out to E.
