IIRC, that sounds about right. Keep in mind that when you fill up, there's usually a reserve tank with gas in it so you'll never actually fill up to the full amount.

15.9 is correct. I have filled up over 14 gallons so it is definitely more than 12.9 Most fillups I am right around 13.5 gallons or so. The gas light comes on with roughly 1.5 gallons left I think? I am not sure the exact amount but I know it is around that.

Also there is a little bit on the bottom of the tank that cannot be used. I believe this is for contaminants to settle and not get sucked into and clog the fuel filter.
