I got a "stock replacement" for a '68 bug from Karl's, put it in my '66. Brand new I couldn't fit more than 9.25 gallons in it without it peeing out of the breather tube. I usually drive 125 miles then squeeze 5 gallons in.

my 68 has had 2 tanks and both were 6 gallons. since my spedo doesn't work idk my mileage either, but it's pretty good, i could go to cave creek and back to baseline/valvista twice before needing to fill up again. probably do that trip 3 times before haveing to fill up.
