How big is the gas tank on a 2014 Ford Escape?

Although there are a few different styles and trim levels available, every 2014 Ford Escape’s gas tank size is 15.1 gallons.
There are three different types of engines found in 2014 Ford Escapes:
  • A 1.6L 4-cylinder
  • A 2.0L 4-cylinder
  • A 2.5L 4-cylinder
Each of these engine types will consume fuel in a different way, so some Ford Escape models may be more fuel-efficient than others.

Measuring your car’s gas tank

There are a couple of ways that you can measure your car’s gas tank to make sure your 2014 Escape holds 15.1 gallons:

Drive your car to empty, then fill the tank

By driving your car until your fuel gauge reaches E, you’ll be effectively emptying your gas tank. This means that when you fill up at the gas station, the number of gallons on the pump display should be your car’s approximate fuel capacity.

Do a little math

I know, I know, but using math to find your car’s gas tank size is pretty easy! Simply use a measuring tape to figure out the length, width, and height of your fuel tank (in inches). 
Multiply these three numbers together to find the volume of your fuel tank. Then, take the volume and divide it by 231, or the number of cubic inches in a gallon. The resulting number should be your car’s fuel tank capacity.

Consult your owner’s manual

Your owner’s manual has answers to most car-related questions—including your car’s fuel tank size. To double-check the capacity of your 2014 Ford Escape gas tank, just search through your owner’s manual for the information you need.

Saving on gas for your Ford Escape

Gas isn’t cheap. Although a 2014 Ford Escape gets 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, which is pretty good for an SUV, spending less on fuel is always great.
If you’d like to save some extra cash by filling up your tank less frequently, there are a couple of things you can do:
  • Follow your manufacturer’s recommended
    car maintenance schedule
    . By keeping your car in good shape, you’ll be able to maintain better fuel economy.
  • Be a gentle driver. Slamming on the accelerator causes rapid fuel consumption. To save on gas, ease onto the accelerator instead to avoid using more gas than necessary.
  • Try not to idle (especially if it’s cold). Idling wastes gas—you’re burning fuel without actually driving anywhere. This is especially true in colder weather when your car has to work harder to warm up.
