    so as far as I can Google my gas tank is 17 gallons on the S14, which is odd cause even when I take it down to the "E" I only get like 12 in the tank and it's full. Can someone give me a definitive awnser on my gas tank?

    should be able to pour 17 gallons in there. you might have issues with the nozzle being too sensitive to the tank. I have never heard of anybody filling up and having those issues. do you use a different gas station each time?

    Your gas gauge is fucked up. Run that bitch until it dies, and then top it off all the way up to the gas cap. It'll fit 17 gallons.



    If it doesn't, someone switched the gas tank.

    17.2 gallons in an S14.

    Run about 300 miles, fill it up, figure your usage, and use the trip OD

    Nissan SUCKS at making gauges that work.

    thats a little lower than it should be... unless you drive an auto.

    Anyway.... just go off your trip ODO and fill up at 300.

    How do you know that the tank was near empty, unless you started coughing, then chances are the gauge might just be way off.

    On both my del Sol and my civic, you could drive below the E on the gauge. I did fill up on time on my civic (which has an 11.9 gallon tank) and it took 11.83 gallons. Going 80 down the highway with cruise on, and all of a sudden the car studders and gives a caugh. Took it down to 55 and started praying. 8 miles down the road there was finally a gas station.

    its not like on the mirage. when the gauge works (1/2 the time its always at F) its deadly accurate. the gas light will actually come on to let you know you're almost out of gas, and the gauge will be reading perfectly full. don't ignore the warning though. if the gauge IS working, and you get within a sliver of E, the light comes on.
