20 gallons. The fuel cut off kicks in at about 15-16 gallons though. You can nurse a coulple of more gallons in there, just be careful you don't max it to 20. The gas will expand with heat.

If you want to drop the tank, it is stamped on the passenger side of it. Mine says 20gal.

That's sort of like asking how many cylinders a stock engine has. There is more than one possible answer.
