    This may sound dumb, but does anyone know how big the gas tankS are on the 2005 Mustang? I've looked everywhere to no avail. I'm thinking that with the two tanks in front of the rear axle, 18 gal shouldnt be a problem.

    Does anyone else have any other info???

    I was hoping for 18 gal too, but according to C&D the tank is 16 gal. :notnice:

    However some of the other info. in C&D was wrong, so let's hope they're wrong on the gas tank too.

    We discussed this before, but the 2005 Mustang has a saddle type gas tank under the rear seat that droops down on both sides of the drive-shaft. This is the same setup that the Lincoln LS uses, I'd guess that the Mustang is only 16 gal. beause the 2005 Mustang is smaller and the rear seats are lower than the LS.
