Regardless of trim level, transmission type, or engine size, every configuration of the 2005 Toyota Cmary shares the exact same fuel tank with a fuel capacity of 18.5 gallons.
Budgeting for your monthly fuel costs is perhaps one of the most troublesome parts of owning a car—especially as gas prices continue to soar across the country. Thankfully, knowing the exact size of your car’s gas tank can help you determine exactly how much money you should plan for fuel costs.
How big is the gas tank on a 2005 Toyota Camry?
The Toyota Camry has certainly carved out a place for itself in the automotive hall of fame as the world’s best-selling midsize sedan. In fact, the Camry outsold all other sedans in the United States for 18 years straight! Part of the Camry’s enduring appeal is its consistency—a feature that can even be seen in the model’s gas tank sizes across each and every trim of its 2005 model.
That’s right—regardless of whether your 2005 Toyota Camry is equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, or either of the brand’s 3.0- or 3.3-liter V-6 engines, you can rest assured that your gas tank has a fuel capacity of exactly 18.5 gallons.
This is true regardless of the model’s trim level and transmission type as well. For example, the Camry LE paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and the Camry SE paired with a 5-speed manual transmission will share the same 18.5-gallon gas tank.

While all 2005 Camrys are made alike in terms of fuel capacity, the same cannot be said about the model’s fuel efficiency across its trims. As the size of the 2005 Camry’s engine goes up, so too does its fuel efficiency rating. Driving a more fuel efficient Camry—even if it's only a single mile-per-gallon more efficient, can really affect how much money you’re pumping into your tank over the course of the car’s lifetime. Let’s take a closer look:
This data shows that driving a Toyota Camry SE V6 offers an additional 37 miles of range on a single full tank of gas over an SE paired with a four-cylinder engine. That’s equivalent to saving more than a gallon's worth of gas every time you fill up your Camry.
