    Not sure how much is left, but be nice to your fuel pump and never let it get that low.

    When the light comes on, FILL IT UP. Then subtract what you put in from 15.5 gallons.

    Sorry! Your right! Why did they increase the size of the gas tank. I think I read somewhere that it was emissions related.?

    they went from a steel tank to a plastic one, i think with the plastic they were able to squeeze an extra gallon in.

    Don't know why, but they are different - even the gas cap on 98, then 99 and up isn't the same. Lots of things are different on the 98's....
