Editor's Comment: The fuel capacity on my Jeep is 22 gallons. The listed fuel capacity is 20.2 gallons, but when it's bone dry I can put in 22 gallons, filling it right up to the brim. I've never been able to put more than 22 gallons in the tank, ever. One day I pulled up to a gas station and was running on fumes. I told the attendant to fill it up, and watched as the gallons poured in. The attendant made a comment like "she's thirsty" because it was taking a lot of fuel. I told him "it will stop before 22 gallons, that's the max." However it kept going, up to almost 24 gallons. Of course I knew their pumps were not calibrated, and I told the manager that either I drive away with a free tank of gas, or I sit there while we call the police, the ACODECO, the media, and whoever else I could think of. He said "have a nice day."
