I have a stock Jeep 98 Cherokee Sport 4.0 4x4, I went to the gas station and to my surprise I fit 18.6 gallons of gas in the tank. I thought my gas tank was 16 gal. How much gas have you been able to fit in your gas tank? I am trying to figure out if it is possible to fit that much gas or the station is ripping people off. Evil or Very Mad

They have 20 gallon tanks, there is a sleeve at the end of the filler tube in the tank that was used for full level adjustment. Some models only came with a 14 gallon level. If you drop the tank, remove the filler tube and adjust the sleeve all of the way up or remove it you can get full use of the space available. It sounds like the sleeve in your tank is starting to slip, very common affliction.
