fuel tank size

1998 jeep TJ 2.5L 5 speed built date 7-97 need to put a fuel pump in it. How do i determine fuel tank size. I have searched 17 different ways and cant get a hit. I know this has been discussed before. Vin decoder says 15 gals not sure I can trust that.

Question: Have you ever put more than 15 gallons worth of fuel into your tank?

Several times I put more than 19 gallons in my wife's '05 19 gallon tank.

Check the part number

There is a part number on the lower drivers side out board.
52018 687AB for the 15 gal and 52018 768AB for the 19 gal.

Yep, BTDT. And isn't the 15 gallon tank really much bigger with just a long fill neck? Park the jeep at the pump with the rear higher than the front and you could probably get a lot more than 15 gallons in.

Swapped fuel pump today. Used a 15 gal pump module seemed to match the one in there. Not to bad a job comes straight down worst part was getting the hold down ring to unscrew. Thanks for the input folks.
