The 2011 Toyota Camry comes equipped with an 18.5-gallon gas tank.
Today’s continuously-rising gas prices have us all wondering just how much we’re going to have to spend each time we pull up to the pump. Of course, this has more to do than just the cost of gas—it also depends on how many gallons are going to go into your tank.
How big is the gas tank on a 2011 Toyota Camry?
The average sedan’s gas tank holds about 12 gallons, but your 2011 Toyota Camry can hold 18.5 gallons. This is both a blessing and a curse and you won’t have to fill up as often as other sedan drivers, but when you do, it’ll cost you more.

How to check your 2011 Toyota Camry’s gas tank size
If you’ve got a sense of adventure, or you’re just looking for some ways to kill time, you can also use one of these methods to confirm the size of your Camry’s tank on your own:
Measure the gas tank
Hopefully, you’ve got some jacks or another method of lifting up your car because our first method requires you to get under your car. But before you shimmy under there, be sure you’ve got a tape measure and a calculator.
Using that tape measure, measure your gas tank’s width, length, and height. Multiply all those figures, then take the product and divide it by 231, which is the number of cubic inches in a gallon.
Check your owner’s manual
If you’re looking for an even easier way to find your gas tank size, just check your Camry’s owner’s manual. This information should be listed under “fuel tank capacity” or something along those lines.
Drive till empty, then fill it up
If you’re truly feeling adventurous, and you’ve got some time to kill, you can just drive your Camry until it’s on Empty. Once your tank is empty, the number of gallons you fill it with is obviously the amount of gas it can hold. This won’t be a perfect calculation, but it’ll be pretty darn close, and you’ll get a solid adrenaline rush out of the adventure—and perhaps a bit of cardio if you can’t quite make it to the station once you’ve hit E. Maybe bring a spare gas tank. And wear comfy shoes.
How to save on fuel costs in a Toyota Camry
Luckily, the 2011 Toyota Camry couples a larger than average gas tank with well above average fuel economy. In 2011, sedans in the U.S. got an average of about 17 mpg combined, but the Camry averages a fuel-sipping 26 mpg combined. A 2011 model has turned over quite a few miles, though, so you may have noticed your car’s performance beginning to slip. Don’t worry, we’ve got some tips you can follow that should help you get your Camry back in tip-top shape and keep it there:
Keep up with maintenance. Even if your Camry hasn’t always been well-maintained, establishing and sticking with a
basic car maintenance schedule now is one of the easiest and best ways to get your Camry running at peak efficiency.
Drive carefully. This isn’t NASCAR, so there’s no need to be riding the accelerator. Easy acceleration and following posted speed limits is one of the simplest ways to increase any vehicle’s fuel economy.
