Tank Size??

I went into fuel up the other day and I had been running on e for a good 40 miles and when I got the receipt I was a little shocked to see what it said. It showed them putting in 12.999 gallons, and to my understand the 2006 Cobalt SS Supercharged has a 13 gallon tank. Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't know you could get a tank that empty... Are they stiffing me at the pump for extra money or is the tank actually a different size? I was even letting the car idle well I was sitting in the line of cars and heard no starvation of gas.

If I remember right it is a 15 gallon tank, it's been a while since I looked it up though

the 2009 cobalt is a little over 13 gallons, I don't think they changed the tank between any of the years.
