Gas tank size

Do the cop car Impalas have smaller gas tanks than normal? All of the specs I've seen on the 2002 Impala's gas tank says it has a 17-gallon capacity. However, I filled mine up the other day from nearly empty (the "low fuel" light had been on for a few miles and the needle was almost to E) and it was almost 15 gallons.

This seems like an undersized gas tank for a car of this size. Am I missing something?

When you hit E you have about two gallons left in the tank. It's a 17 gallon tank for the 9C1 and 9C3 models like all other Wbody Impalas.
