I am attempting to find the size of my fuel tank. My research so far says 55 gal. Anyone can tell me if this is correct?

A tape measure might give you an idea. But usable fuel -- fuel you can put in and get out -- that's a whole new question. My maunal says I got 90 gallons but looking at where the fuel neck enters the tank, the tank can never be full. And God only knows how far down my fuel pickup is. I was climbing a hill with a fairly empty tank and the motor started to loose power, lights came on, wife got noisy; all the bad things. I think at that point the tank was near usable empty. G-luck.

According to your Owner Guide you have a 55 gallon tank.

And unlike most diesel pushers, your tank is rated by actual usable gallons, not what size the tank is.

Thanks! I will attempt to fill up no later than 1/4 of a tank. Would sure hate to run out of gas. Hopefully I have a 55 gal.

Thanks for the info!! That is what I came up with too. I should have read the reviews before I purchased this one! Seems like the 6.0L isn't the best engine to own.
