Default fuel tank size

looking for possible ideas/reasons why my 1991 truck only has a 35 litre/ 9.25 gallon fuel tank on it? Everywhere I read is that they came stock with a 60 litre/ 15.9 gallon fuel tank.

also, while i am here, should it be easy to upgrade to the bigger fuel tank if that's what they were supposed to hold anyway?

cheers

someone just swapped in a smaller tank. probably to fit that flat bed you have.

you can get custom tanks off the shelf and finagle that in. or add a second tank like old F250's have

still outside the US where the trucks may have come with different options. I doubt Nissan used a fuel tank with such a small capacity.

Take a pic of the fuel tank so we can see if it looks to be OEM or not.

according to the nissan australia brochure, which is in the sticky, there was only 2 fuel tank sizes, 60 and 80.

was this the same in the states?

how big is everyone else's fuel tank out of interest?
