There are eight trims and three engine options to choose from for the 2014
Honda Civic. But there’s only one option when it comes to fuel capacity — you’re getting a 13.2-gallon gas tank no matter which model you buy.
The fastest and easiest way to determine your car’s fuel tank capacity is by consulting your owner’s manual. But, if you’ve temporarily misplaced your manual, you’re in luck:
Jerry, the licensed broker and car insurance comparison
super app, has put together this quick reference guide to your 2014 Honda Civic’s fuel capacity.
How big is the gas tank on a 2014 Honda Civic?
The 2014 Honda Civic’s gas tank holds 13.2 gallons. The average gas tank falls somewhere between 13 and 16 gallons in size, so the 2014 Civic isn’t breaking any fuel capacity records.
Honda offers three engine options for the 2014 Civic: a 1.8-liter, 143-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a 2.4-liter, 205-horsepower four-cylinder engine, and a 1.5-liter, 110-horsepower hybrid four-cylinder engine. Regardless of engine size, each 2014 Honda Civic comes equipped with the same 13.2-gallon tank, but what does that liter measurement mean?
The liter measurement that goes with your Honda’s engine refers to engine displacement — or the volume in your engine’s cylinders. Fuel capacity is wholly unrelated and varies from car to car, regardless of the engine displacement.

How to check your 2014 Honda Civic’s gas tank size
There are a few ways to figure out your 2014 Honda Civic’s gas tank size if you want to double-check our measurements.
Measure the gas tank
Do it the way the Ancient Greeks did it—by measuring and calculating. All you need is a trusty tape measure and a calculator. Measure the height, width, and depth of your tank in inches and multiply those values together to get your tank’s total volume in cubic inches. Then, divide that number by 231 (the number of cubic inches in a gallon) to find out how many gallons your tank holds.
Here’s an example: If your gas tank is six inches high, 12 inches wide, and 36 inches long, its total volume is 6x12x36=2,592 cu-in. Divide 2,592 by 231 and you’ll find that your gas tank holds 11.22 gallons.
Check your owner’s manual
The easiest way to find your car’s gas tank size is by simply looking it up in your owner’s manual. Just scan for phrases like “fuel tank” or “fuel capacity” in the table of contents to find that info.
Drive till empty, then fill it up
If you’ve got a bit of a wild side, you can just drive your car until your fuel gauge indicator is on “empty”. Then take your Civic to the gas station and fill ‘er up. Note how many gallons it takes to top up your tank from “empty” and you’ll have a rough idea of how many gallons it holds.
Do not drive until you completely run out of gas. When you run out of gas, your car’s engine will stall, making it difficult to steer and brake. Stalling can be dangerous, especially if navigating difficult terrain or driving in a high-speed area like a freeway.
How to save on fuel costs in a 2014 Honda Civic
The 2014 Honda Civic has an average combined fuel economy rating of 25 mpg. That falls on the lower end of the compact car spectrum, but there are ways to get more bang for your gasoline buck out of the Civic.
Keep up with regular maintenance. One of the most effective ways to keep your fuel costs down is by keeping up with scheduled maintenance. Diminishing fuel economy often means you’re overdue for an oil change. So, honor your oil change appointments, and you’ll never pay more than you have to for gas.
Keep your RPMs down. Accelerating rapidly increases fuel consumption. If you want to save money on fuel, we recommend accelerating gradually rather than putting the pedal to the metal.
Avoid idling.Allowing your car to run idly is a big waste of fuel. Instead of letting your car’s interior warm up in the winter, consider wearing a warmer jacket and letting it warm up as you drive. You’ll probably find that enduring just a couple of minutes of brisk weather is worth it to save hundreds of dollars in gas money.
