How to check your 2009 Honda Accord’s gas tank size
You don’t have to just take our word for it, though. If you want to see for yourself just how much gas your 2009 Accord can hold, try some of these methods.
If you’re more of a hands-on type of person, you could grab your measuring tape and a calculator to determine the gas tank’s volume on your own. The process is to multiply the width, length, and height of your Accord’s gas tank and divide the result by 231 (the number of cubic inches in a gallon).
Check your owner’s manual
As mentioned previously, you could dig out your owner’s manual and find the listed fuel capacity somewhere inside. Try checking the index for “fuel capacity” to get a better idea.
Drive till empty, then fill it up
If you consider yourself a risk taker, there’s a method that’s a bit dicier than the rest. That method is to drive your Accord until the fuel gauge hits “E” before filling it up completely. It won’t give you an exact measurement, but the meter on the gas tank will give you a good idea of what your general driving range is!
