How Many Gallons Does a Semi Truck Hold?

The usual capacity of a semi truck’s gasoline tank is between 125 and 300 gallons. Each side of the tractor contains a fuel tank, and fuel is transferred between the two tanks to balance weight.

The fuel tanks on semi-trucks are not standard, but rather customised to the demands of the buyer. For instance, a used 2011 Kenworth T660 truck can be purchased with two 120-gallon gasoline tanks for a total of 240 gallons. Tractors with larger gasoline tanks are appropriate for cross-country drivers and drivers of heavy-duty trucks. For balance, some truck builders use larger gasoline tanks on one side over the other.
