How big is the Nissan Sentra SV gas tank?

I’m trying to budget for a road trip, but I don’t know how much to budget for gas. I have a Nissan Sentra SV - how big is the gas tank and how far can I get before I have to fill up?

Nissan Sentra SV
has a 12.4-gallon gas tank. It gets about 29 miles to the gallon if you’re driving in the city, and 39 miles to the gallon on the highway. If you want a conservative estimate, you’ll get around 360 miles on a full tank of gas.
There are some ways you can boost your fuel economy to get the most out of each fill-up. Here’s how:
  • Clean out your car. Every extra 100 pounds of weight dramatically reduces your gas mileage, so ditch things like bikes or luggage racks.
  • Limit idling. Sitting still with the engine running burns more fuel than actually driving.
  • Keep a steady pace. Constant stopping and accelerating drop fuel economy, so use cruise control when you can.
  • Check your tire pressure. Tires with low air decrease your fuel economy by 3%.
  • Keep up with regular maintenance. Having parts that function correctly keep your fuel-burning efficiently.
Knowing the size of your vehicle’s gas tank can keep you prepared for road trips or commuting, and having a good
policy can keep you prepared for emergencies. If you need better coverage, the
