The 2019 Toyota Tacoma was available in six trim levels and a wide variety of cabin and bed length configurations—but the gas tank on all of them is 21.1 gallons.
What’s the size of the gas tank on a 2019 Toyota Tacoma?
The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling midsize truck in the U.S. for a while now, and it’s no wonder! With a wide variety of configurations possible and Toyota’s stellar reliability ratings to back it up, there’s a Tacoma that will be just about anyone’s type.
How to verify your 2019 Toyota Tacoma’s gas tank size
If you’d like to hear it from multiple sources, there are a few other ways of determining the capacity of your Toyota’s tank.
If you’d like to measure the tank yourself and calculate the capacity, all you need is a measuring tape, a calculator, and access to the gas tank. Measure the length, width, and height in inches, and multiply them together. This will give you the tank’s volume in cubic inches.
Now divide that volume measurement by 231, which is the number of cubic inches in a gallon. The end result? Your tank’s capacity in gallons.
Look it up in the owner’s manual
If you still have your owner’s manual or can find it online, then you can get the gas tank capacity straight from the manufacturer. Look for a section named “specifications” or “capacities”, and you should be able to find the info there.
Drive until the tank’s empty, then fill it up
If you’re of a “just try it and see what happens” mentality (and you like to live on the edge), you can determine your tank’s capacity in real time by driving until it’s empty, and then filling the tank all the way up. This will give you a rough real-world estimation of how long you can go on a tank of gas, but don’t push your luck too far, unless you’ve brought an empty gas can and comfortable shoes.
