    What size gas tank does a 96 XJ have

    Most likely 20 gallons.

      I second that. 20 gallon is the norm.

            Physically, XJ gas tanks are 20 gal, however, it isn't always possible to get 20 gal of gas in the the tank. This was due to the baffles that were placed in them. It seems DC changed the baffles when they came out with the plastic tanks, but the metal tanks generally had a "15 gal" capacity.

            Their have been numerous write ups on the web where guys have changed the filler neck position in order to get the tank to hold more gas.

              you say they changed to a plastic tank. can you get a plastic tank for a 93?or would the newer plastic tanks work on a 93?

                  Anything can be done if you have the where-with-all. Can they just be dropped in? No. There are some dimensional issues with the mounting straps and fuel pumps and if I remember right, hose connections are slightly different.

                  Plastic gas tanks started in '97.
