SX4 fuel tankery

So today's random observation: All AWD Suzuki SX4s come with an 11 gallon fuel tank. However, all FWD Suzuki SX4s have a 13.2 gallon tank. I assume this is due to the AWD system taking up a bit more undercarriage space.

Thus far, we're averaging 26.1 mpg with our AWD SX4 equipped with a manual trans. The puny 11 gallon tank does require frequent refueling, but they rarely exceed eight gallons.

Amazing. All the advances made in automotive technology yet the fuel gauge still neglects to inform you of the actual amount of fuel left in your tank.

Would it be possible to post a side by side comparison of your Yaris and the SX4? As a fellow Yaris owner, I'm quite interested in a size comparison!

BTW the SX4 seems like a really cool little ride. Helluva nice price too!

Actually, the SX4 does have a "range" on the fuel computer.

As far as a size comparison, this is all I have right now.
