    Default Fuel tank size.

    Hi there. I have just bought a new Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 4 X 4 auto and the specs say that the fuel tank is 80 liters. However, the diesel fuel light comes on and the range indicator says 35 kms to go but when I fill up, I can only put in about 65 liters. I have contacted both the dealer and Toyota and they claim that the 'reserve' tank is about 15 liters. Is this correct?? Any other Fortuner owners experience this?

    Yes, reserve between 12 and 15 l and that not included in range calculation.

    The most I have been able to fit into mine was 69 L and range said 20 km.

    With the V6 I have the feeling that we could be testing the limits a few more times

    Filled up with ~75l (max 75.94l) a couple of times with range showing 'Refuel', which it will get to after the km range countdown to 0 has been reached. (So you have the 'countdown' indication and then the 'refuel' warning. The amount of liters it take for each of these indications / warnings is up to you to determine. Owners guide state approx 12l.)

    According to my logbook (as I keep track of the 'range' as well) I have filled up with 71l (range 56), 75l (range 19), 71l (range 76), 74l (range 11), 70l (range 59) etc. Remember how the 'range' calculation works, using ave fuel consumption.
