Gas tank size?

Is there a simple way to determine the gas tank size on my '97 TJ? The owner's manual gives 15 gal. standard and 19 gal. optional. I need to replace the supporting cover under the tank and I am uncertain which size to order. I would prefer not to run the tank real low on fuel and then see how much I can put in. I'd appreciate your help.

I believe the tanks are the same size just the vent tube sticks into the tank further.
Do a search on 15 to 19 gallon gas tank mod, should have alot of useful info in those threads
