Last week my brother and I went up to my cabin to get it ready for winter.
We went into town to get some things and stopped at a filling station. I fueled his truck (2017 Chevy Colorado) while he went inside to pay for the gas and buy us some beer and snacks.
Here is the thing: his truck took over 26 gallons. I knew we were running on fumes but I don’t see how I got 26.4 gallons into a 21 gallon tank.
He looked at both his owners manual and his window sticker and both say the truck has a 21 gallon fuel capacity.
A few days later when we got back home to the south eastern part of the state we had to refuel again. 25.7 gallons. WTH?
I know some manufacturers put slightly bigger tanks than they say and have gas gauges read less than the tank has to keep people from running out of gas on the highway. But no way would they put a tank 6 gallons more than the manual says.
Any idea what the deal is here?
