Percentage-wise, though, not too different!

Yeah, the problem is the people that install the new bladders not taking their time and getting things installed properly.  If they don't get the corners aligned properly or don't tie things off properly you end up missing a gallon here and there.  I'm missing about 30 gallons in mine so yes, you're lucky. :-)

Me too.  I think the number was around 146.  Shrinkage comes with old age?  :o
