Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Gas Gauge Is Nearly Useless

June 3, 2008 about Saturn VUE
  1. On the first 1/4 tank, I can get nearly 125 miles. The next 1/4, around 100. By the time I hit that last 1/4, it's around 75 miles or so.

  2. The specs for my Vue say it is a 16 gallon tank. I have driven it 48 miles after the empty light came on, and when I refilled, it only took 14.5 gallons to fill it.

Mine is similar to that; I can usually go about 280-300 miles before the gauge reads 1/2 a tank. I usually fill up at around 320 miles, but it only takes around 9.5 to 10 gallons to do so with a 16.3 gallon tank...which means my 1/2 is really about 1/3 of a tank left.

The basic tank for a community is a 24x12x15 and will hold 15 gallnos of water and would be big enough for small fish of about a inch big and can total 15.If you have enough room for a bigger tank then the next size up would be 36x12x15 which will hold 23 gallnos of water and still be able to keep 15 fish that are 2 inches big.If you still have enough room then the best size will be 48x12x15 and will hold 30 gallnos of water and you would be able to keep fish up to 3 inches totalling 15-20 also invertebrates.I would not try to get any bigger than that.Tropical freshwater fish keeper for more than 20 years.
