256 Fuel Cpacity

Recommended Posts

Interesting. I have the same question. I have a 1997 256 and the manual shows a fuel capacity of 57 gallons. However, when I am very near "e" and filled up recently, it only allowed 33 gallons. I can't believe that there are 24 more gallons left when I am close to "e". I suppose that I should also check my fuel sensor to be sure it is not getting stuck somehow. Any thoughts?

 

Also, where can I find the performance spec's on RPM's, GPH, range, etc?

The 86 gallons came from here:

And here is another, much closer to your number of 57 gal.

For a reference, we had a Four Winns 268 Vista for 6 years, fuel capacity was 80 gal. The sister ship a 248 Vista which is close in size to your 256, had a fuel capacity of 70 gallons.
