I was quite surprised to read that the fuel tank has a 50 litre (11 gallon) capacity. We've run it until well after the DTE reads '---' many a time and never got more than 40l in.It's a bit frustrating. I'm not too worried about economy but it bugs me when I can't go door to door on a journey without filling up. I need a bigger tank

Actually, now you say that it rings a bell. I once read about owners in the US getting a payout because they were all lead to believe they had the larger capacity tank....

That makes a change, not the usual response I get to answering that question. Everyone swears its the other way round until I show them the page in the brochure. Why they didnt fit the 50l tank to all is beyond me but there you go.

That's because I trust you mate!I imagine the 4x4 tank is a different shape to accommodate the drive shaft. On the Zed's they have more of a 'saddle' tank and a syphon between the two. I guess the 4x4 Juke is the same. It's cheaper to have a more standard tank if you don't have the drive shaft in the way. Although, you would have thought you'd get more available space on the FWD cars...

it's the latter that make people assume the 2wd has the bigger tank as they wrongly assume it needs a smaller tank to accomodate the 4wd, where as it needs the bigger tank for its low mpg.And before Kat says Yes my DCI could do witht he bigger tank
