If it's on a Workhorse chassis it holds 75 gallons.

There is a good chance it shows empty way before it is empty. I know my 150 gallon tank has 40 gallons left when it shows empty on the gauge, at least I think I know that. Never took the chance to find out. But it also uses almost 40 gallons before the gauge comes off full.

Hey Almgsail,

I think both the Ford or GM rigs had a 75 gallon tank. Our '02 does.

Regards, Howard

I have a 98 33' seabreeze on a Chevy chassis. Supposed to hold 75 gallons. I could only squeze in enough gas last night to get me to 3/4 full on the gauge. I kept trying but the pump kept clicking off. Has anyone else had this problem?

Your vent hose is either kinked or clogged. Mine had a trap in it.

Dick,
Where is the vent line at in relation to the filler tube? Also, how did you fix yours?
Thanks,
Marty

The vent line runs along side the fill tube. The vent line is about 7/8" dia. make sure it has a slight slope toward the tank with no low spots to trap liquid or any kinks in hose ends to restrict flow of vapor from the tank.

Chuck got it. I was replacing the fuel fill line and got it a bit long which created a trap and shut off the pump. Mine had tie wraps around the fill line holding the vent hose on top of the fill line and someone had pinched the vent line so not enough air could escape during filling and the fill line leaked. A real PITA to replace.
