In the manual for my 07 that info is in two places, I actually just looked the other day... A handy chart printed on the second to last page of the book, and you can also usually find that bit of info by searching in the index in the back for - Specifications - Capacities.

Ah ha! 15.9 gallons.

I did a typical human search of fuel tank which yeiled zero information. "Fuel CAPACITY" is the ticket. Sigh.

That's interesting...
Prior years were listed at 16.9 gallon capacity, but then that was "theoretical" capacity.
Due to the tank design, the total volume was 16.9 but the usable volume is closer to 16 as the 16.9 includes volume inaccessible to allow for fuel heat expansion.

I'm wondering if the actual tank design and volume changed or if the factory is now just quoting usable capacity vs theoretical....
