    I bought a 2001 Santa Fe yesterday.It`s the 4 cyl 2 WD auto model.My gas
    gauge showed 1/4 tank so I filled up.After about 7 gallons the pump
    stopped.I double checked to see if the tank was full and it was.The question
    is- unless the gauge is not working correctly,how can the car only take 7
    gallons when 3/4 empty? I know that the Santa Fe has a 17.2 gallon
    tank...PS,the gauge didn`t go all the way to F when I filled up.It was close
    but not fully on F...

    **I used to have a 2001 SF LX and my dad has a 2001 SF GLS (both 6cyl
    AWD). We both had/have the exact same problem. For me, the problem was
    intermittant. The gauge would drop quickly so I would fill up and it
    would take some piddly amount. This would go on for a few days and
    then stop. The longest stretch was 2 weeks. I drove my dad's SF when I
    went home for vacation and noticed he had the same problem. He said
    that he just ignores it and that it's constant for him not
