S4 is 16.6, S5 is 18.6 gallons. On an S5, one gallon is unusable, and the low fuel light comes on at 2 gal usable left.

s5 equals one less pitstop in a 3 hour [email protected]

and the s5 tank went right into the s4 and the s4 tank went right into the s5.



oh and dont put the 3 rotor into the s4, big engine + small gas tank = gas station tour
