What is the 1995 Buick Riviera gas tank capacity?

Actually, according to my owner's manual ('95 Riviera), it's 20 gallons. a zillion gallons I think it's somewhere around 18 gallons. Don't quote me though. I just bought my 1997 Riviera and the dealer put a couple gallons of gas in it before I left the lot (gas light was still on, was basically bone dry before he put gas in it). It cost me $33 to fill it at $2.05 a gallon. That's 16.1 gallons that I put in it myself, so if I'm correct that the dealer put in about 2 gallons the capacity is 18 gallons. I'm pretty sure the 95 and 97 have the same tank, not positive though.
