I can go 75 below E and still only put 10 in my 11.9 gallon tank!

When you go to a gas station, the pump should tell you how many gallons you put in, if your gas pump doesn't tell you how many gallons you put in, then you should try a differnt gas station, once you know how many gallons you put in, you take the number of miles you went, and divide it by the number of gallons, it's really very simple.

The pump clicks off after I put near 10 gallons in, but then I can squeeze in another 2+ gallons- seems a high amount to top off with- I just thought I had a faulty fuel indicator in the tank.

I have found that the amount of gas I can fit in the tank, bare bones, is generally a little higher than what the number which the manufacturer reports it as. In either case, at 530 miles, you are doing pretty well, whether the tank holds 10 gallons or 11 gallons. I certainly would not be unhappy with those numbers.

Ok, so I found the other source that said the Civic VX/CX is a ten gallon tank. The owners manual.
It states, and I quote:
Quote:
Gas Station information
Fuel Tank Capacity:
(US:VX, CX)
38l (10.0 US gal, 8.4 Imp gal)
(US: DX, Si, Canadian Cars)
45l (11.9 US gal, 9.9 Imp gal)
So it seems that there are some variances between the models. That coupled with the knowledge that Honda does have two different part numbers for gas tanks between the VX/CX and the other models leads me to believe that something somewhere went terribly wrong and my VX is the only one that has a 10 gallon tank, lol. But then again that statement about Canadian cars has me a bit confused. Does it refer to Canadian assembled Civics (which most all of them are) or does it refer to Civic models sold in Canada?

I think that's right. I'm pretty sure my '95 VX has a 10 gallon tank. I once ran it dry on purpose, because I wanted to know. The nozzle clicked off at 10.138 gallons.

I once looked at all the VX gaslogs, looking for very large fills. I found only a very small number of fills over 10 gallons. The record (at least as far as what I could find) is 11.174, here: http://www.gassavers.org/garage/viewgaslog/796. I think the only other car with a fill over ten (10.236) is here: http://www.gassavers.org/garage/viewgaslog/217.

Those cars are a '92 and a '93. I think somewhere along the way I got the idea that those years had a 12 gallon tank, and then they switched to 10. Not sure, though. But I'm darn sure that my tank ('95) is 10, not 12.
