There is a write up on how to drop the tank and cut the tube shorter and make it a 19 gal. Hows that for Chrysler making a buck on upgrades? Same tank, same skid, same pump, different tube installed on the assembly line, and probably part of a package that cost hundreds more.

if you are filling up and seeing 14+ gallons, you have the 19 gallon. I have driven mine through the warning light, to the needle being lower than the E, to the point of weighting my options on how I am going to get to the gas station, who am I gonna call for help etc...and only been able to get 12.5/13 gal in when finally filling.
I had a YJ and did the 19 gallon mod. But the writeup I used said that TJ are actual different size tanks.

And yes, she has been warned repeatedly that if she runs out of fuel, call someone else.
Same here. I take the light as more of a suggestion than anything else.

I never knew wranglers had a low fuel light.I ran out of fuel twice in my 1998 Wrangler. Both times the fuel gauge read between 1/4 and 1/2 tank........ After that fill ups can at 1/2 tank......

Old thread, but I recently when I had a bunch of time at the gas station decided to see how much I could get in it. 18.9 gallons believe me or not I even kept the receipt, but I could not have put another drop in if I wanted too.

Fuel Tanks size and fill up issue

The below is tank part numbers are the size of GAL= tank no matter what your build sheet says. I have a 99TJ and thought it was a 19 Gal but the part number on tank and cross reference to below chart shows it is a 15.Gal. Now I know why 11.5 gals is the max I can get in tank at fill up.

EP0=All 2.5L Gas Engines
ER0= All 4.0L Gas Engines
TANK, Fuel

52018 687AB 1 EP0, 15 Gallon
ER0

52018 768AB 1 EP0, 19 Gallon, 1998 TJ, 1999 TJ
ER0

52018 768AC 1 EP0, 19 Gallon, 1997 TJ
ER0
