Default What is the JK reserve size?
I’ve owned the JK for about a month and I’ve filled it up a bunch (not complaining) but I’m curious because the tank is supposed to be 22.2 gal and every time I’ve filled it, even once it didn’t register a range and the most gas I’ve put in is 18.2 gal.

i've heard both 2 gallons and 2.8 gallons mentioned on other sites. it's in the user manual if you really want to know - i think in the section about the gauges, under the low fuel warning light/chime part.

Hmm, i wonder why I'm putting in 4+ gal less then the 22.2 gal that the tank is...

Might have to get up under the JK and figure out if there is a hidden compartment full of cash or cocaine (please be cash) or something.
