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.

They can't. They use diesel, not gasoline.

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 so if they are 200 gallon tanks, the 18 wheeler can carry 400 gallons of fuel when full 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.
