    Run them out 1 at a time while keeping fuel in the other, then go fill them up. The pump won't lie.

    Most GM's don't have a switch to change tanks anymore. They use fuel from both tanks at the same time. At least mine do.

    My 07 Chevy dump holds about 50gal between both tanks....but I think its considered a 45gal setup.

    There's no good reason to run either tank dry.Why risk sucking a higher concentration of dirt/water or possibly running a pump dry?Besides,I already stated the volume of each--22 and 18.
