When I fill up, just after it hits reserve, I'm usually putting in about 4.5 US gallons.
I am normally at 4.5 when the light starts blinking as well. I don't think you can put a full 6 gallons in the tank. The fuel pump takes up some volume and you can't top off the tank with out poking some holes in the filler neck.
