|jtalar||The gas tank is a 19 gallon tank, its the same as the older ones, they shortened the fill tube to make the pump think it is fuller faster. I have ran mine quite awhile after the dummy light came on, and when filling I get 17 to 18 gallons on the pump.(not to say the pump is right). Try this, like on an episode of Seinfeld, run that beeyyottcchh as far past E as you can, then fill up. see how much it takes to fill up. Let us know........|

When the tank is fuller, the float is more horizontal, so the same $10 of fuel moves it further.

Interesting read about Jeep gas tanks :

If you hop into a 60's-70's Ford you'll see why gas gauges are now pessimists.
Back then the gauge would basically do the opposite. and once it hit E the car would stall. so now they hit E, and will go 20-50miles.
Typically the "low fuel light" means you have somewhere around 2 gals. left. The Jeep is extra pessimistic.

|jeep.barbie||I have noticed that to.. My gas gauge is the same way. but Mines usually about 50 the first half and about 75-100 the second half. So i only get about 125-150 miles a gallon maybe about 11 miles a gallon.. and I thought my tank was bigger as well...But its only about 14-15 gallons. I dont understand it...Love the jeep but bad gas mileage haha!|

curious gas gauge question.
I sit me or does the gas gauge on a 2000 wrangler seem to move faster the first half of the tank then slower the second. What i mean is even when filling up. from E $10 will give me very little. but from half a tank on $10 seems to give me a lot. Also while driving with a full tank the first half of the tank i can maybe go 60 miles then the other half from half to E i can go about 120ish. Also, when im at E and fill up the jeep only takes about 11 gallons to fill, Isnt the tank on a 2000 wrangler a 19 gallon tank? does that mean i have 8 more gallons as a reserve? Main reason i ask is becasue when i first test drove this wrangler at the dealer funny enough when i got in and started it the dealer had let the gas gauge go well below E. Thank god i made it to a gas station. Any thoughts?
