2017 cr-v gas tank size

10

Asked by Jun 08, 2017 at 10:53 PM about the 2017 Honda CR-V LX

Question type: General

I bought a 2017 CR-V LX a couple of weeks ago and have filled the tank twice.  Both times I drove it until the gas light came on (and then some) and both times I was only able to put 10-11 gallons in.  I was under the impression the tanks held 14 gallons but doesn't make sense that I can only put 10 in after the light has already been on. Any suggestions???

The light comes on before you run out of gas. If it came on when you ran out then you wouldn't need the light. Running out of gas can fry your fuel pump so don't run it too low.

Your owners manual will tell you the gas tank size.

I understand the light comes on before you run out of gas, but I've never had a light come on when I'm supposed to still have about 4 gallons of gas. The light came on and I was only able to put 10 gallons in.... I would think I could put about 13 in if the tank truly held 14.

Just remember that you have 4 gallons in reserve which in your car is worth about 100 miles.

I have the same problem with mine! When I called Honda, they told me the tank has 2.1galons reserve. Still doesn't make sense! I can't fill up more than 11.1 gallons! One time I went more than 25 miles after the light came on and was able to fill 11.8 gallons...

There is no "reserve" tank. All you get is a warning when the gas gets to a certain level.

Genius! And how you call that level?
