Ok weird question:I had a new tank installed last October-ish and I never thought to ask how big it was. I have a new in-tank pump/sending unit, filter, hi-pres pump, etc. my dash gauge gets to E after around 240 miles and I fill it up with about 23 gallons. Could I have a 25 gal tank?? I thought it would be bigger. I don"t want to run it until it sputters out to verify all this.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

The options were 25 and 33, IIRC. If you"re putting 23 gallons in when empty, then it"s safe to assume you"re rocking the 25.Welcome to the 25er club!

That looks like the larger tank to me. The 25 I have had and seen don"t seem to hang as low and none had the skid plate.You"re out of the club.

Aaaaaannnnnnd now I"m back to wtf. Thanks schwim, I didn"t want to be in that club anyway. :toothless Is there any other way to know for sure other than run it dry? I don"t think I have a drain plug. Could I have a sending unit for a 25 and it"s put into a 33g? Too short to reach the bottom?Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Your "88 should be the 32 gal. tank. LMC lists a 25 gal. tank, but it"s only for the "80-"84 years. Measure your tank as best you can. The 32 gal. measures roughly 32"x22"x16".
I"m pretty sure that"s the large tank. My 93 f150 and 92 Bronco both go deep past E. Fill a 5 gal can, go for a drive and run it dry, you"ll find out.:thumbup

I installed a brand complete tank and sending unit in my "89 couple months ago and does roughly the same thing. Which almost all these older ford"s I have owned seem to drive for miles and miles once hit the E mark but then again I like living on the edge like that LOL... I agree with Rico if you want to know for sure fill the 5 gallon fuel jug and run her dry. Plus that will give you a good fuel range to be mindful of...... Just from the pic I would say you have the 32 gallon tank.... Good luck...

Well, I guess that"s my plan. When I get close to E, I"ll put the gas can in the back and see when I run out. I may try to call the shop that did the work and see if they can give me part numbers too, just to make sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Lol I just called the shop and apparently this place doesn"t keep very tight records. He told me that his record showed install of a "gas tank, sending unit, fuel pump, and fuel filter." No part numbers. Welp, gas can method in effect I suppose. I"ll measure the tank dimensions next chance I get. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

If it is indeed the 32 gallon tank (or 33 gallon as it"s listed in some places) it will probably hold more like 37 gallons when filling up from bone dry. When I put my new tank in, I only put 1-2 gallons in it. Just enough to fire it up and get to a gas station. It took just under 37 gallons to fill it up, leaving about a 5 gallon reserve once you hit "E" on the fuel gauge.
