I hate to do this Gary but I thought the GT had a either a 12 or a 14 gallon tank. I don't ever think that I put more than that into my gt...

It has been many years since I had it though so I may be wrong...

I am pretty sure it is close to 16 gallons.
I used to put 15.5 gallons in my old GT.

I'll second Gary on the 16gal, I've put in close to 16 gal before... only because I tend to look at my trip meter vs my fuel light, since it starts turning on after using only 10 gallons of gas

The original question asked about the GT. I thought they were smaller than the All-Trac tanks, but I don't have a reference to say for sure.

My ST165 owners manual says 15.9gal tank capacity. In about a dozen years of driving an ST165 the most I remember ever getting in is just over 12 gallons.

It's defiantly smaller than the AT.

I believe it is 15.9 also.

On a more fun note, my GT's fuel line just burst right under the driver side.
