Most are mine are in the 8-9 gallon range. Makes more sense now.

Also note nookandcrannycar fills the tank until he can see the gas.

What I would like to do is add more capacity to my gas tank. I have often toyed with the idea of getting a 20 gallon tank. You could go a long way or a long time without gassing up.

I wonder how hard it would be to drop the OEM tank and get an aftermarket tank. How would that effect the gas gauge?

Kilometers/tank

Can someone please tell me approximate total KILOMETERS per tank?

I've found that my fuel indicator stays above half a tank until nearly 500 KMs, then suddenly drops to two bars, to be followed by the blinker pretty quickly.

I've been estimating at about 600km/tank to be safe.

What is everyone else getting in kilometers?

Thanks

Hi All,

has anyone noticed if when they power their car on and the dashboard lights up if the fuel light comes on as well? I noticed all my warning lights came on except that one and want to know if maybe the sensor is burnt out on it.

thanks

I have this problem as well in my Echo. Sucks.

have you tried getting it fixed? or were you told this is an echo feature? reason asking is because my gas meter pin I noticed stays in place where my gas level is until I lock the car...this never was the case from 2012-2014, the minute I took my key out the engine the gas meter would reset as expected. Toyota is telling me that I am lieing about this which I am not and do not know how to get it resolved. let me know if you have the same issue

Never really attempted to fix it, I inherited this car from my wife... She can't remember when it started doing that.

I usually get a little above 400 miles / ~650km per tank. This is on 10.5g, I usually fill up with 9-10gal, leaving some extra in there. My ferry range would be higher.

My longest tank was over 500mi (800km), summer before last when I had a fantastic commute. At that time, though I was stuffing the tank right up to the fuel cap, ignorant of the dangers this posed to the canister.

I've liked that idea myself. 12-14g would be fine. I have had some crazy ideas such as seeing if I can bang the tank walls out a bit to get some extra volume. Don't know why just because it's an economy car made for good fuel economy, we can't have a bigger tank.
