      Well i was running REALLY low on gas so i went to fill it up....total was 12.6 gallons. I always thought it was a 12 gallon tank. How much does it actually hold.

      BTW its a 92 GTI 8v

      NO NO NO NO NO!!
      the tank itself holds 14.5 gallons but only 12.8 gallons of it is accessible (usable)..
      if you've ever filled up more than 12.8 gallons know that you were running on fumes, brotha..
      don't be assuming you have 2 more gallons when you're in the red, cuz you'll be walking to the gas station while the Honda drivers are laughing at you..
