FAQ – Kia Soul Fuel

What size gas tank does a 2020 Kia Soul have?

All 2020 Kia Soul models have a fuel capacity of 14.3 gallons. A first-gen Kia Soul’s gas tank only held roughly 12.7 gallons, but the newer models’ bigger tanks and improved gas mileage mean you won’t have to fill up as often.

How many miles per gallon can a Kia Soul go?

For the 2023 model year, the Soul does not have a selection of engine options. A 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 147 horsepower is standard equipment. Regarding gas mileage, the Kia EX is your best bet, with 29/35 in the city and on the highway, respectively.

What kind of gas does the Kia Soul take?

Unleaded or “regular” fuel with an octane rating of 91 or above is the best choice for your Kia Soul’s fuel tank.

Where is the fuel filter located?

You may find the fuel filter for your 2016 Kia Soul in a somewhat visible place along the fuel line between the gas tank and the engine compartment. The Carquest Premium 14×1.5mm inlet-outlet Metal inline fuel filter, item number 86319, may be purchased for around $24 as a replacement.
