The actual volume of the fuel tank Hyundai Creta 1.6 and 2.0 2018-2019
When buying a new car, most drivers are wondering about the capacity of the fuel tank. Yes, I agree with you that this is far from the most important criterion for choosing a car, but it directly indicates how much the car will travel from refueling to refueling on a full tank of fuel. To understand all the intricacies of our car, we decided to write an article about the volume of the Hyundai Creta fuel tank.
The Hyundai Creta tank volume is a value that shows how much fuel can fit before a full refueling. In addition, the volume of the tank can be judged on the size of the car. In other words, the larger the tank, the larger the car should be.
The manufacturer lays down a certain maximum mileage that a car can drive without refueling on a full tank. On average, for all cars of a certain class, it is very similar.
It so happened that large cars need more fuel to travel a certain number of kilometers, and small cars need several times less fuel to overcome the same distance. Accordingly, a large car needs a larger tank than a small one.
Thus, manufacturers have developed some unspoken standards. If, for example, about 30-35 liters of fuel can fit in the fuel tank, then a small engine will also be under the hood.
If the tank holds 40-60 liters of fuel, then the car will be medium-sized, such as a large sedan or crossover. Well, if more than 60 liters of fuel is placed in the tank, then most likely you have a large pickup truck or SUV in front of you.
Of course, there are exceptions to these rules, since this classification is very conditional and there are no clear standards in this matter.
Hyundai Creta fuel tank capacity in numbers
But let’s not go far from our topic, but back to our crossover. So, the volume of the Hyundai Creta fuel tank is 55 liters. The volume of the Hyundai Crete tank is 55 liters in all trim levels and does not depend on the year of manufacture of the car and the installed engine and gearbox.
Crete’s closest relatives, namely the Hyundai Solaris and Kia Rio, have a slightly more modest figure – only 43 liters of fuel. But they are not a crossover, so my above statement works in this case.
But the Hyundai Creta is not so simple either. Often, many car owners write messages on the forums that the tank holds many times more fuel than indicated in the passport. Although Crete’s tank is not rubber, these statements take place.
The fact is that about 58-60 liters of gasoline can really fit in a practically empty Hyundai Creta tank. But this condition will be met if the tank is almost (or completely) empty. And the fuel is refueled under the neck. And these 3-5 liters can easily fit in the neck of the fuel tank.
Fuel tank volume Hyundai Creta 1.6 2018 — 2019
The Hyundai Creta 1.6 2018 and 2019 has the same fuel tank, which holds 55 liters of gasoline.
Tank volume Hyundai Creta 2.0 liters
As I said above, the volume of the Hyundai Creta 2.0 liter tank does not differ from the Creta by 1.6 liters. The fact is that the cars are made as unified as possible, therefore the tank for these modifications is installed the same – for 55 liters of fuel.
Fuel tank Hyundai Creta price
The Hyundai Creta fuel tank can be found and ordered using part number 31150-M0000. This pleasure will cost about 20 thousand conventional units. Considering the prices of fuel tanks for other modern cars, we can say that the cost of a tank on Crete is not so high.
The fuel tank is changed most often after an accident or if the tank is damaged while driving on rough roads. If no one is safe from the first, then in the second case you can protect yourself. We specifically wrote a whole review article about the protection of the Hyundai Creta fuel tank. Who has not yet seen, then run to watch and read on our website. You don’t even have to go far!
Tank design Hyundai Creta 1.6 and 2.0
Now let’s talk about the Hyundai Crete tank itself. In general, the fuel tank has a similar design as that of other cars. Basically, it’s a container for gasoline. It does not have any special features or options. Its purpose is to contain gasoline and prevent it from leaking out. Therefore, there is no point in talking about it a lot.
Previously, fuel tanks on cars were made exclusively of metal. At first these were steel tanks, but due to their rusting, many manufacturers abandoned this. Later, iron was replaced by non-ferrous metals, which were less susceptible to corrosion, but in production such tanks were more expensive.
Almost all modern cars have plastic tanks. Such tanks are absolutely not subject to corrosion, but are more fragile. If a metal tank can be repaired when damaged, a plastic tank is more likely to break or crack. Which will definitely lead to its mandatory replacement.
How many liters are left in the Hyundai Creta tank when the light on the dashboard lights up?
Many Crete owners are interested in this issue.
And it really has its place. After all, it is important for the driver to know how much he will drive on a burning light bulb. So, the refueling lamp lights up on Crete when there are less than 10 liters of fuel left in the tank.
On a burning lamp, you can drive another 100 km. Of course, you should not take risks and “dry the tank" as much as possible. But, if an emergency situation arose, and there are no gas stations nearby, then the Hyundai Creta can drive about 100 km on a burning lamp.
"Rubber tank" Hyundai Creta – video of the owner from the gas station
On the Internet, we found a video in which the owner at a gas station poured 68 liters of gasoline into the tank of his Hyundai Crete. This is even taking into account the fact that the tank was not completely empty.
Unfortunately, we cannot fully state that so much fuel really got into the tank, since at many gas stations the meters are specially set up incorrectly in order to display more filled fuel on the display than in fact.
