Default Re: Round plastic gas tank

My guess is approximately 66 miles.

Volume of the tank = ((3.1875/2)^2)(2)(pi)(9.5)= 151.615877 in^3
Volume of one gallon of gas = 230.999952 in^3
Gas in your tank is approximately 151.615877/230.99952 = .656 gallon
Assuming you get about 100 miles per gallon then (.656)(100) = 66 miles

Just a guess though. I suppose this where it would be totally appropriate to say Your Mileage May Vary!
