Default 32 Gal Gas Tank owners

Has any one ever put more than 28 gals of gas in the tank im trying to figure out if i actually have one( the window sticker says i do). I know in the manual it says the gas light comes on when you have three left so i would be safe to say 35 miles left. So i have bleed the gas tank dry a couple of time or at least tried and everytime nothing over 28 would go into the tank. A couple of days ago i went almost to the extream but i guess not; gas light came on i went 40 miles and filled up still only a lil over 28 gals. So my first question those of you with them have you ever got over 28 and second does everyone think that with a reg gas tank if you have three gals left when the light comes on would it be more with the 32 gal like the light would come on at 5 gals left? I need some peps to weigh in on this cause if they didnt give what the window sticker says best believe i will get some repay even if it isnt that much

I wish I could find my window sticker...oh wait, they trashed it when they detailed it! Any clue where I can get a copy of the sticker? I believe I have the 32 gal tank, but I haven't filled her up with more than 29 gallons yet.

I have the 32 gal tank, and at my last fill up, I put 30.7 gallons in it. I drove about 50 miles, mostly hw, with the low fuel light on before stopping at a gas station.

Pretty sure I put just over 30 gallons in mine right after I got it but can't remember for sure. I never let it get that low anymore.

Most I've put in was 30 gallons and change, try not to run it down that far too often.

I've only let my low fuel light come on once, and on that fill, it took 28 gals to fill up.

Seems a bit premature to kick on the light when I should have 4 gals of gas left... but I guess the early warning is nice, as 4 gals wouldn't get me much more than 80 miles.

I am usually about 28-29 gallons also. I have had it as low as 20 miles to empty and have not gone over 30 gallons.
I figure there must be a gallon in reserve...?
if it say 20 miles until empty, that is almost 2 gallons left in the tank in most of my cases...

I have the 32 gallon tank. Only filled it a couple times though, 1,500 miles. Maybe they want you to not run it low, as the gasoline acts as a lubricant for the electric fuel pump? Thats my theory.
