how big is the gas tank really?


Asked by 2quirky Apr 08, 2012 at 06:48 PM about the 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara XSport 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

manual says the gas tank is 17 gallons - but i cannot fill more than 13-14 gallons max - when the empty light goes

1 Answer


The engineers design vehicles that way. Most have about 3-4 gallons left when light comes on. If the tank would be empty when the light came on the light would come on AND you would run out of gas at same time.
