      I did some measurements and ran the numbers to be about 41.5 gallons. Minus some measurement error, I'd say the 40g is probably pretty close.

        yeah minus all the crap inside the tank.

        I filled up yesterday and my meter measured like 34 gals pumped in.

        I also think the RDS sender sucks. It's like 4" too short.

        I will be fixing that problem in another post soon :-)

            There is not really that much expansion from heat. I filled mine up to the very bottom of the fill up tube once to see what would come out. I have a clear tube that runs into a gallon container. I measured out about 2 tablespoons full. I would say that to be safe though, don't fill it to the top. I think you get more out from going around curves and hills (if you have them) than from expansion.
