Default gas tank size

Im new to the blazer world, i have a 01 4 dr . I was wondering what is the tank size that comes in these . I been having problems with the gauge so it seems. When its on Empty i fill up and only dump 13 gallons into it, and check the mileage and it says between 190-195....Cant be right .Anyone know anything ?
Thanks Jason

On mine when the gauge shows ~1/8 of a tank remaining, the gas pump only shows ~14 gallons going in to fill it up, so yours seems to be in the ballpark.

yeah I just bought my 99 4dr. on 11/27 and the first time i saw the gas light come one (even though it was because i stomped on the gas) I filled it up and squeezed in a little over 13 gallons. I managed 200 miles this time before it got below 1/8th and i am filling it today after work, i expect it to take a little over 14 gallons, but we'll see.

Seems that 13-14 gallons when the light comes on is common fill up then. I imagine that when its totally on the E then might be able to squeeze 16 gallons into her then. You get 200 out of a tank ? thats what im getting also...some tell me i should get 220-230 plus out of a tank...not sure how its going to get that kinda mileage..

well I got 201 out of 14.6 gallons this time, that's about 13.5 mpg, but we had snow, and a bad flood here so that's not too bad i suppose. it does seem that if you fill when you first see the gas light staying on, you get 13-14 into it...

I have one line under the 3/4 full mark and right now it has 52 miles on it...so that would or should be about 200 ish a tank then...hafta see i suppose when she gets down to E what the mileage is.

fuelk gages register differnetly. You'll have to watch it and see.

Mine likes to take forever to drop to 3/4 tank, drop quick to 1/4 tnak and then take it sweet time to empty, and even then I still have 3 gallons in the tank when my gas light comes on. Every one is diferent.
