How to check your 2019 Ford Escape’s gas tank size

If you’re not quite ready to take us at our word regarding your Escape’s gas tank size, or you have another vehicle you need to determine the fuel tank size for, here are some steps you can follow to determine your gas tank’s volume yourself.

Measure the gas tank

I bet you never thought you’d use any of that high school math again, right? Well, here we go. To measure the volume of your gas tank on your own, just grab a tape measure and a calculator (or do the math by hand if you want to make it challenging). To get your fuel tank’s capacity, multiply the width, length, and height, then divide the result by the number of cubic inches in a gallon, which is 231.

Check your owner’s manual

An even easier way to check your car’s fuel-tank size is to check your owner’s manual. The information will be listed under “fuel tank capacity” or another similar phrase for easy location.

Drive till empty, then fill it up

Feel like taking a drive on the wild side? You may want to bring along a spare gas can for this one, but you can also find out how much your tank will hold simply by driving until it’s empty, then filling it up. The number of gallons you can cram into that empty tank is the number of gallons your tank is capable of holding.

How to save on fuel costs in a Ford Escape

The 2019 Ford Escape averages about 26 mpg combined. In other words, the Escape's EcoBoost engine is a bit heavy on the Boost and a bit light on the Eco. But don’t worry, there are lots of ways to maximize your Escape’s fuel efficiency and save cash at the pump.
  • Keep up with maintenance. One of the simplest ways to keep your Escape performing at peak efficiency is to keep up with your
    routine maintenance schedule
  • Drive carefully. The Escape is not a race car, so don’t drive it like one. Soft acceleration is a great way to avoid consuming extra fuel.
  • Avoid idling, especially in cold weather. If you’re stuck in a traffic jam, and no one is moving, shut off your engine. Also,
    warming up your car does very little for the car
    , so no need to waste fuel there.
