My 04 Outback manual states that the vehicle has a 16.9 gallon fuel tank. The last time I filled the tank when the guage showed almost empty I could manage to put less than 14.5 gallons in it. It is again almost on empty at 264 miles driven mostly around town. According to the fuel economy ratings this should mean that my 14 plus gallons at 22mpg would get me about 264 miles. Is the guage accurate or the capaciity listed in the owners manual incorrect. I don't drive this car everyday, but here from my wife that I need to get more gas. Anybody wish to pipe in? I havn't had to walk to a gas station in a long while and have no desire to try it anytime soon.
