I think they are all 15.9, because that translates to 60 liters. It will tell on the back cover of the owners manual.

Well i looked at it...and on the front of the book...it says Outback Sport. On the back manual it says OBS=15.9 (13.2 Imp)....so im guessing that means the 2.5RS i think is 13.2....

Talking I know the answer!!

The 13.2 is in Imperial Gallons vs standard US gallons. 1 US gallon is equlivent to 0.8326738 Imperial (UK) gallons. Leave it to an engineer to know the conversion. You tank volume is the same as everyone elses.

There's no way to know that with any sort of accuracy. It varies from car to car, and even on the same car it's not going to be the same every time.

I really don't understand why you think you need to know the size of your gas tank in order to figure out mileage. The gas pump tells you exactly (to the third decimal place!) how much gas you put into the tank each time you fill up. What is your gas tank capacity going to tell you that the gas pump doesn't already show you? What more do you need to know?!

well lets say...my light comes on and i still have 3 gallons left in my tank...its good to know how much further i can go. I was just wondering how big my tank was, wasnt trying to get an attitude from anyone.
Steve
PS-The gas pump tells you how much you put in...i could have half a tank of gas and fill it up...does that mean my tank can only handle 7 gallons???

He was referring to determining mileage. You don't need to find out how much your tank can handle for that. You stop for gas and fill up. You document your mileage and amount of gas you pumped. At the next stop, you fill up again, documenting your mileage and amount of gas pumped. From that, you can determine your mileage.

next time you fill up... reset trip-meter, drive around... next time you fill up, record mileage on tripmeter, then reset that, get out, fill tank, record that number as well. Divide miles driven by how many gallons you just put in.
