Fuel tank capacity is 15.3 US gallons. Usually when your gas gauge is low you can only pump in around 12-13gallons due to having some in reserve. Your probably calculating your MPG incorrectly. Fill up the tank and write down the mileage. Drive the car till around till you get to a 1/4 tank, and refuel. Now mark the milage again and how many gallons you pumped into the car. Subtract the mileage numbers to get total miles driven and divide that by the gallons you just pumped into the car. You should be around 18mpg.
