1993 F250 Fuel Tank Size

Just wondering if anybody knows the possible sizes of the fuel tank on a 93 F250. I recently purchased it and it seems that the tank is only 18-20 gallons total? Just wondering if this is normal or not.

Also, does anybody know where I can get a repair manual for this thing? There's a few big problems with it that need to be fixed and if I had a manual with diagrams that would be helpful.

If it's the same as the 150's, I'm pretty sure it is, then the front tank is 16 gallon and the rear is 18

book

i have the haynes books for these year trucks and it is pretty good but not as good as chiltons for diagrams. chiltons usually cost a little more but, its worth it for the diagrams.

it all depends on the cab/bed length. my reg cab long bed has dual 19 gallon tanks, the short bed has a 16g front tank and i believe a 19 gallon rear tank... ive squeezed 19.5 gallons in my front tank and 19 even in the rear, if you want more range, you can always swap in a bronco tank, 33 gallons. i plan on that after my engine and gear swap.

my chilton manual states:
front tank (SWB F150): 16.5 gal
front tank (LWB gas): 19.0 gal
front tank (LWB diesel): 20 to 22 gal (varies with model)
rear tank (exc. chassis cab and superduty): 18.2 gal
rear tank (chassis cab and superduty): 19 gal

I found the rear tank which is between the rear axle and the bumper but where would the front tank be mounted if I had one? I can't seem to find it so I'm wondering if it just has the single 19 gallon tank.

It's a Reg Cab Long Bed.

the front tank starts at the back of the cab and ends at the rear axle, but seeing how you have only one fill, you have one tank.

dual fills = dual tanks

Thanks, Aswaff400. Though only having 18-20 gallons is kinda annoying seeing as I don't think this thing is getting more than 10mpg but oh well.

you could always swap in a bronco tan, 33 gallons. you'd lose the space for your rear tire but aint that what the bed is for?! or one of them in-bed fuel tanks if you want a farther range

Thanks, and yea the spare just rides around in the bed right now, I'm looking for a relatively cheap mounting bracket to keep it form sliding into the big tank of Hydraulic fluid that sits against the back of the cab right now. I see you have yours mounted upright and was wondering what you used.

Since it is a plow range isn't the biggest issue especially since it's going to spend the majority of the rest of it's life in the same parking lot 1 block from a gas station.
