Mensagem:  How can I say "encher o tanque de gasolina" in English?

Fill up the tank with gasoline.

Since you typically would not put anything else in the car gas tank you can often just say "fill up the tank".

Back in the days of gasoline stations with attendants you could just drive up and say "Fill it up please" and be reasonably sure they would use gasoline!!! Oh well, nowadays you have to do it yourself!

Be well.
