Just put on a different tank on my '95 after which, I pushed it to the gas station to see just how much gas it would hold.
If the pump would have been a little slower, I think I could have fit the last 0.008 gallons to give 3.8 gallons. This would be filling it up to the top of the upper lip of the gas cap filler hole. As Ironman said, you can't get all of the gas out of the tank even on reserve.
My last fillup was 3.036 gallons (146.9 miles) and while my gauge showed empty, I was not on reserve yet.
I think you will find that when the gauge shows 3/4, you actually have used up 1/2 of a tank of gas (about 1.5 gallons).
