Hate to break it to you but youre going to be battling for that full tank. I bought my 15 overland from them as well. I love the dealership and had the best experience purchasing from them, but they would only fill the tank to 1/2. They claimed it was their policy. I was able to negotiate in a full tank but it wasnt standard as it should be.

Youd think buying a 40k+ vehicle automatically warrants a full tank of gas. Apparently thats not the way it works anymore

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

With the "administrative fees" they add on ranging from around $200-$400, you'd think they could spring for a tank of gas. I wouldn't do business with a dealer like that on principle alone.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

I've only ever spent $99 for administrative fees. Every new vehicle I've purchased has come with a full tank. Never asked. Just assumed. I'd throw a FIT if they handed me keys without filling tank. I really would.

Edit....actually EVERY vehicle I've purchased at a dealership, new OR used, 7 total (4 brand new) ALL came with full tanks. I honestly never knew this was an issue

Same here. I've purchased over 25 vehicles and every single one has been full.

Don't even care. I'll pay what I've agreed to. But a new car should come with a full tank. Period

Check the window sticker. A lot of new cars these days have "Full tank of gas" listed as one of the vehicles 'features'.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

My JGC had a full tank when I picked it up, but it had electrical problems which caused it to go back the next day. The dealer kept it and gave me a Chrysler 200 as a loaner. The next day he called and asked if I would mind if they gave me an identical replacement vehicle that had to be picked up about 75 miles away in Indiana. He assured me that one had no problems so I agreed. Went over and refilled out the paperwork (they hadn't cashed my check yet or processed any of the title papers). Went out to the car and the tank was at 1/2. Salesman rode with me to the Shell station about three blocks away and filled it up.

Every new car I've bought has had a full tank (and there have been a few of them in the 52 years I've been driving). When I took delivery of my special order 1978 Bronco, the sales man was just bringing it back from the gas station where he had filled it. He was shocked because he had forgotten that I had ordered it with a 35 gallon tank. Gas was cheaper back then, but so were cars and incomes. I only paid about $9,000 for that truck custom ordered.

It was meant to alleviate costs, which I could understand would cost millions per year. However, this sounded silly to me so my question to you is:

Did you have to put gas in your vehicle after taking delivery?
I took delivery of my new 2015 Summit a little over a week ago, and the tank was full. I did mention it ahead of time that I expected a full tank of gas but I believe it is the policy of the dealership I purchased it from anyway.

Every car I've purchased from a dealer has always come with a full tank.
