No, it's 19.5, although some sources say it's 20 and that the reg cab short bed's is 17. But Ford officially says, 16.5, 20, 19.5.

The 20 gal with long beds began in '98. Before that, they came with a 16.5.

lol. I don't think its 16.5 because even when its almost on top of the E the most i can fit in it is like 12.5 gallons.

Not just on Rangers, years ago my mom had a '93 Cougar, it too had the triple duty Check Gage light. Yeah even on E, you still got a ways, although I don't recommend it, it's hell on your pump, plus you could get stuck some where, lol.

hey eric its bad cause the fuel filter on the pump can get clogged with shit floating around in the tank.

also as far as mileage goes i think i get a solid 2-3 mpg, maybe on long downhills i get like 4, at least thats what it seems like, my truck drinks gas like i drink beer...

wow that's impressive for having 33's, I have 32's and am getting 19 pure freeway, and about 13 in the city.
And that's with a 5 speed and new oil, new plugs, fuel filter, cleaned up throttle body etc.

I have a 19.5 gallon tank
