Is there any way to tell how much gas is in your gas tank if the gage is broken?
If your fuel gauge is broken there are two ways you can estimate how much fuel is in the tank.
- Use a (flexible) dip stick to probe through the fueling port and see how deep the fuel is in the tank. If you know how the fuel depth relates to total quantity, you can estimate how much fuel there is.
- Record the mileage on your odometer when you fill your tank. If you know the gas mileage that you vehicle gets, you can at least estimate when it is time to refill so you can avoid running out of fuel, and you may be able to estimate how much is left at any given time.

They are designed to hold 11 gallons, but some teams have been able to get 11.7 gallons from the gas can. (the neck of the can was full also)
an 18 wheeler does not use gas.it uses diesel.now the tanks can hold anywhere from 60 gallons to 200 gallons each most trucks have a tank on each side s…o if they are 200 gallon tanks, the 18 wheeler can carry 400 gallons of fuel when full Answer All new trucks are equipped with dual fuel tanks for balance--if you had only one tank the truck's steering would be different with a full tank than with an empty one. They come in three sizes: 100 gallons, 150 gallons and 200 gallons. Fleet drivers' trucks have 100-gallon tanks, and we refuel every day. Independents usually run 200-gallon tanks, but I think if I had my own rig I'd have 100-gallon tanks.
A 1964 VW Bus can hold 8.75 gallons - answer came from service manual.
Vietnam War tanks such as the M48 Patton and M551 Sheridan tanks had roughly 300 gallon fuel tanks.
from 50 to 100gals
Answer What I would do is fill the gas tank all the way up. Note the cost of the fuel and the amount of gallons it took to fill it. Clear your trip meter… so that it is on zero. then run the vehicle for a day or two (depending on how far you drive each day) then refill the tank , note the mileage that you had travelled and divide the mileage that you had gone into the number of gallons it took to fill the vehicle the second time. You now have a estimate of the miles per gallon. Just keep track of the miles you have driven after that.
it ranges between cars, my car can hold about 16 gallons of gas.
Not a drop. 18 wheelers don't use gas - they use diesel. As for how much fuel they carry, it depends on how the owner orders it. For a daycab which is only going to run short …distances, there really isn't any need to hold 300 gallons of fuel, and it might only hold 100 or 120 gallons. For a line haul truck which travels long distances, 200 - 300 gallons is typical, with 200 - 260 being the norm.
If your having problems and suspect bad gas an old an easy test is to put a liter of Methyl hydrate in the tank before you fill up next time. If water is the problem the meth… will mix with the H2O and burn just fine.If that doesn't solve the issue then it isn't gas problem.
Answer Either a fuel line de-icer or a fuel line dryer.
In Asian Cars
It depends on what kind of car it is on. It is easy on some and some you have to remove the differential.
