3rd gen Fuel Tank: size and dimensions

Post by forrestmccarthy » Wed Oct 09, 2019 6:09 pm

I’m planning to proactively replace the fuel pump on my 2004 Astro. While I’m at it I would like to replace my 22-gallon fuel tank with a 27-gallon tank. Everything I’ve read states that my 3rd generation Astro should have a 27 gallon tank. However, I’ve tested its capacity by intentionally running out of gas and found my current fuel tank only holds 22 gallons. Unless anyone knows where I can purchase a new 3rd generation 27-gallon plastic tank my only option is obtaining one from a junkyard.

Is the tank size listed on the parts code? If so what are the codes? Otherwise my only course of action is visiting junkyards with 3rd gen Astros and physically measuring the tank sizes.

The dimensions of my current 22-gallon tank are 11.5” high x 18” wide x by 48” long. Is anyone with a 3rd generation 27-gallon tank willing to measure it and provide its dimensions?

Thanks!!!
