## How big is the gas tank on a 2018 Hyundai Sonata?

Regardless of the exact trim level you choose, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata will come with an 18.5-gallon gas tank. This gives the 2018 Sonata a full range of 574 miles before you’ll need to visit a gas station.

## How to check your Hyundai Sonata’s gas tank size yourself.

There are a couple of different ways to check the size of your vehicle’s gas tank at home:

### Drive your car until your tank is empty, then fill it up

This may not be the most scientific way to figure out how much gas your Hyundai can hold, but it can give you a general idea. Simply drive your car until your fuel gauge has reached E. Then, head to the gas station and fill up your tank.
The number of gallons of gas listed on the pump after you finish filling up should be close to the total capacity of your fuel tank. But be cautious when using this method.

### Use some basic math

That’s right, we’re going back to geometry class. First, measure the length, width, and height of your fuel tank in inches. Then, multiply these numbers together to get the total volume of the tank. Finally, divide the result by 231, or the number of cubic inches in a gallon.

### Look in your owner’s manual

This may be the easiest way to check the size of your fuel tank. Simply grab your owner’s manual and check the index for words like fuel or gas. Somewhere in the manual, you should find a measurement for your vehicle’s fuel tank capacity.

## Saving on Hyundai fuel costs

Whether you’re planning a big trip or just looking to lower your car expenses, saving money on fuel costs is a great place to start. There are a couple of things you can do to reduce the amount of fuel you use in your daily life.
1. Set (and maintain) a
basic car maintenance schedule
to keep your vehicle in good working order.
2. Try not to get overzealous with the accelerator. Instead, aim to coast to a stop when possible.
3. Don’t let your car idle, especially in the cold. Idling wastes gas, especially when your vehicle has to work hard to keep the engine warm.
