In 99 a 19 gallon tank became standard on all tj's so your 99 has a 19 gallon tank. I also have a 99 4 cylinder and it deffinitely holds 19 gallons cause ive put 18.7 gallons in it
By the way welcome to the forum and congrats and your new jeep!

|skeeter||I had the same problem, it turned out to be the pick up tube on the bottom of the pump had fallen off inside the tank.|

|Walkeraviator||Just keep in mind that even with a 15 gallon tank, if you fill it up at the E you may get 12 gallons in it if you are lucky.|

i have a '99 4 cylinder and had the same problem, my issue was the dash cluster, it didn't bother me so i didn't do anything at first. but i swapped my factory gauge lights for some blue ones and when i put it back together it started working again.
and welcome to the forum.

|bitterbeerface||thanks dude... this thing is a blast. the night i bought it i drove it up the front steps of my house to show my brother... haha... i can see myself getting in a lot of trouble with it.|

With your 4 cylinder you are going to have a 15 gallon capacity tank. I'd look for your problem either in the sending unit or the gauge cluster as you mentioned.
Oh, and welcome to the board and to your Wrangler. They are a blast.

8 gallon tank?!?!?
this is my first time posting in here... i just got a 99 wrangler i4 and have to say i love it. i've always wanted one and finally got it. i've had cherokee i6's before and they were obviously a lot more powerful, but this is still pretty damn fun to drive.
reason i'm posting is because upon fillup, the tank only took 8 gallons! and this was from the gas light having been turned on for a while too! right away i thought either my gauge is messed up or maybe the tank is severely dented i got underneath and the tank looks fine.
i know that there was a recall for the gauge cluster wiring for this model year... and when the tank is full it says i only have 3/4. so i'm hoping it's that. or maybe a sensor or float in the tank?
i don't know, speak to me!
