It looks like it's a 17 gallon tank.... new news to me... I thought it was roughly 13 or 14 and always wondered why my fuel light never came on and then it'd take 12.xx gallons to fill it.... apparently I wasn't running it low enough *L* my guage doesn't work worth crap either.... here's where I got the info, apparently these fuel guages stink

I'd imagine it's just a calibration issue.... I'm not 100% sure though if anyone else has some insight to shed on this or a 94-97 accord with the same problem I'd be interested to see what the suggestions besides calibration are...

I have the same problem!

My gauge looks just about empty at about 12gallons.

I dont think you can run E85 on your Accord. From what i know, you have to get your engine retrofited to use E85

NO & NO!!!!!!! Do not run E85. Even the newest Honda engines will only accept E10.
