Default Fuel Tank Size?

Hey everyone, got a quick question. I was wondering what my fuel capacity was. Its an '89 150 with dual tanks. My fule gauges are subpar, and I never have enough money to top both of them off.

Rear tank should be 18 gal, front 15 gal.

Sorry for the thread jack, but I'm wondering the same thing, except on a 2wd, reg cab, longbed '91. What should the size of these tanks be?

Thank you sir. Someone told me they were different sizes, but I didn't belive it.

my 94 LWB dual tanks are: front 19 and rear 18. The ford spec is 37.2 total. Where the .2 comes from is anyones guess. But as thirsty as these things are, the .2 is just a sniff for the ol' girl. LOL
Hope this helps.
