  • Fills at a ong pump in okla

    The Guthrie, Ok ONG pump only had about 3000psi today. Is that normal for a ONG pump? My fuel gauge on our GX only had 2 bars showing on the empty side when I tried to fill for the first time. I could only get 4.335 gge's in the tank. After filling tank, the gauge went up to the first white bar on the full side of the gauge. I was expecting to pump more than 4 gge's.
    Thanks for your input.

    Yes. To get 3.6k psi, for now, you will need to visit the CE station at Will Rogers.

    The GX tanks are small to begin with, IIRC ~ 6 gge's, so that sounds about right.

      All GX tanks since their inception in 1998 have been 8 gge. Many try to argue the point because they never able to add anything near 8gge to a tank, so they assume it's a 6gge. It seems more in line with their fueling experiences.

      The lower full mark is to note a 3000 psi fill, the upper mark a 3600. Heat expansion will reduce your fill capacity by 1 gge, give or take. Allowing the tank to cool and hitting it again will allow you to top off. A useful trick when range is imperative.

      Your range difference between the two full marks (600 psi) may be 20-50 miles depending on things like city vs highway, or even air conditioning in use. I've found that I can pay a heavy mileage penalty for running the air in my 2004, something on the order of 10mpg.
