Customer Question

I just bought a 2016 optima sxl turbo and it says it has an 18 gallon tank but on empty I can only put 14 gallons in it. The gauge shows full but how come I can only ever put 14 gallons in it?

When the fuel gauge is down to "E" its really not empty. The empty gauge allows room for driving it that low for a while.
