tank size

so i have refilled gas twice, as soon as it goes into the fuel reserve i go to a gas station. The owners manual says 14L, but both times i've only filled 10L, is this normal? And now its making wonder how much liters the reserve has, as it says 3L, but maybe its less?

The total tank capacity is 14 litres in main, and 3 litres in reserve.

I'm not sure why the tank would read empty if there is still 3 litres in there..

+1 agree. Makes sense, if you have 14l total capacity, of which 3 is reserve so you'd tank with 10 if the R shows.

It's the correct spelling of liter for most of the world!
The litre (International spelling) or liter (American spelling) (SI symbols L or l, commonly, but incorrectly, abbreviated as ltr) is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre (dm3).

I've never put more than 12l (3.2 gal) in mine, even after doing 40km (25mi) on reserve trip.

one says 14L + 3L, others say 10L + 4L. Can anyone confirm that has actually refilled their tanks, how much do you refill when it hits reserve and you go to the gas station

14l total, 3 of which are considered the reserve. The "main" is 11. In other words, when the fuel gauge is blinking, you should have 3l left (assuming it's accurate)
