ive put 18.89 gallons in mine before drove almost 350 miles.

my friend has a 04 level2, he put just over 20 gallons in once. needless to say he prolly barly made it to the pump.

it all depends on the pump you go to also. sometimes they turn off early.

the manual tells you what size you have.

and super cabs are always 19.5 gallons. that is the biggest

OBDII requires full range misfire detection. Ford wants to be sure that most drivers never run out of gas which could possibly set a misfire code. When that happens, Ford pays for totally unnecessary warranty work.

Remember also that new Rangers come with 3/36000 Roadside Assistance which includes help if you run out of gas.

IMO, those are the 2 reasons why you get the low fuel warning and empty gauge reading so early - roughly 3.5 gallons before empty on a nominal 19.5 gallon tank.
