I have an 06 AWD Equinox that only fills 11 gallons max at the pump. The gauge says its full. The specs say its a 16 gallon tank. What is everyone else filling up at? could there be something wrong with my fuel tank?

Probably more likey a problem with either the gas gauge than the gas tank - unless you put a 5 gallon sized dent in your gas tank !

Or tank still has 5 gal in it when you filled. Try running right out. (bring a 1 or 2 gal can of gas)..then fill up after you have run out and added the 1 or 2 gal.

Not a good idea. The gasoline serves as a coolant for the fuel pump, and running out can shorten the live of your fuel pump - mine failed in Va on a trip back from Florida to NY back in 1998. Wasn't very much fun.

It wont run long on no gas. I think about 0 seconds.
