How to check your 2006 Honda Accord’s gas tank size

If you don’t want to take our word for it, here are a few ways to check your car’s gas capacity on your own.

Measure the gas tank

As long as you don’t mind crawling under your car, you can figure out how much gas your car can hold by measuring the tank. Just grab a measuring tape, and follow these simple steps:
  • Locate your fuel tank.
  • Measure its width, length, and height.
  • Multiply those numbers together.
  • Divide the result by 231 (that’s the number of cubic inches in a gallon) to determine your gas capacity.

Check your owner’s manual

The easiest way to find your car’s gas capacity is by consulting your owner’s manual. Just scan your table of contents for a “fuel capacity” or “gas capacity” entry, then turn to the listed page to find information on your car’s gas tank and how much fuel it can hold.

Drive till empty, then fill it up

If your owner’s manual isn’t available, and you don't want the hassle of crawling under your car to take measurements, you can estimate your vehicle’s gas capacity by driving it until the fuel gauge is on “E”. Once you head to the gas station to fill it up again, simply watch the pump to see how much gas it takes to fill your car.

How to save on fuel costs with a 2006 Honda Accord

One advantage of driving a sedan over a crossover or SUV is that they generally get better
gas mileage
. According to data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the 2006 Honda Accord gets between 21 and 26 mpg depending on its transmission and engine type. That fuel economy is pretty good, but it still can’t compete with the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid and its 47 mpg
If you’re looking to reduce fuel costs for your 2006 Honda Accord, here are a few things you can do:
  • Stay on top of
    routine maintenance
    . It can be tempting to skip out on that $100 wheel alignment, but keeping your car in good condition is one of the best ways to reduce its fuel consumption.
  • Don’t drive aggressively. Speeding and slamming on your brakes cause your car to consume more fuel. Follow the rules of the road and drive carefully to keep your gas usage down.
  • Turn your car off when you’re not driving. While it’s often convenient to let your car idle if you’re waiting to pick up a friend, doing so uses fuel. Shutting the ignition off whenever you’re not driving can extend the time between gas station visits.
