An odditty about the gas tank in a Toyota/Scion iQ

An oddity about the iQ ...

Not only does it have one of the few flat gas tanks in the auto industry, but it has a very odd capacity of 8.5 gallons / 32.2 liters.

This makes it very difficult to estimate how much gas is left in the tank.

Each of the 6 “marks” for capacity represents 1.41 gallons

One remedy for this is an OBDII device that indicates “Miles left to travel” fuel efficiency.
