Dodge Ram 1500 SLT: My name is

Customer Question

My name is ***** *****: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I purchased a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT truck on 05/29/2012. I kept the window sticker, which reads that the truck is equipped with a 32 gallon capacity fuel tank. Since the purchased date, I have yet to be able to buy 30 or 32 gallons of fuel. I have talked with Mr. Raul Flores (Service Mgr.) at Lone Star Dodge. He tells me that the tank is a 32 gallon capacity, and that I have to take into account that the tank has several operating items in the tank. That such items take up a lot of space and that I won't need to buy 30 or 32 gallons of fuel. I told him, that the most gallons I have purchased in the last three years is 22 gallons. On three occasions, I have bought 24 gallons. That being with my belief that I am running on fumes. I need to know of how much capacity (in gallons) is the true size of the tank.
