Fuel Tank Capacity

I have 97 F250 Crew Cab Short bed pickup. It didn't come with a manual and I haven't ordered a replacement yet. How big are my fuel tanks? Having the two smaller tanks on a pickup takes a bit to get used to - I swear I can see the needle moving down slowly.

Thanks!
Ryan

Also, is there any way to increase fuel capacity? Any aftermarket tanks that fit?

They should be 15 gallons each. For a total of 30 gallons or something close to that. Like 12.5 gallons each so that would give you 25 gallons of fuel.

Most I THINK are 19 gal each, I got tired of it and swapped the rear tank for a 33 gal out of a bronco, makes a BIG difference

Did you have to move your spare tire to swap in that fuel tank?

I could have fabbed a bracket to hold the spare but it would have hung down and looked stupid so I just threw it in the bed under the tool box lol
