The US Government Energy Guide PDF for the XP40T12HE36U0 linked from this page also states "Capacity (1st hour rating) : 68 Gallons". Why is that?

Answer: 
So there you have it! !
Rheem has now said that BOTH the linked catalog Specification of 73 gallons the first hour AND the linked Energy Guide number of 67 gallons the first hour are CORRECT!
Quite an accomplishment.

The XP40T12HE36U0 product description on this web page says "Delivers 68 Gal. of hot water in the first hour”.
The “Specification” PDF file linked from this web page says “First Hour Delivery G.P.H. 73” for the XP40T12HE36U0.
Is it 68 or is it 73 gallons the first hour?

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 227 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dead out of the box I purchased this water heater to replace a GE model that had lasted 10 years. The folks at the store were helpful in getting it off the high racking and helping me get it loaded. Installation went fine, all lines and the vet lined up with the model it replaced. When I went to light the pilot, I could not get the status light to illuminate so that I could turn the burner on. The pilot would light, but the status light would not. A call to Rheem customer service resulted in a diagnosis of a bad thermocouple. They are willing to send me one out, expect it in 1-3 business days. I was disappointed with Rheem’s sense of urgency, if their CEO was the one taking ice cold showers, I bet they would have found a more timely solution. If it is bad out of the box it should be eligible for a return to Home Depot September 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No hassle ordering on line with free pickup at store was good. Water heater heats water as should. I like the digital monitor and the piezo pilot starter. Haven't had the water heater long enough to give long review. Installed myself with help from friend. Easy Peasy. I intend to drain annually and may change dip tube and anode rod for longer service, seems easy enough. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid performer I bought this unit over a year ago and have had no problems. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super efficient I knew my old water heater was bad, but I didn't realize how inefficient or weak it was until I got this new Rheem. We had to turn the dial back twice because the water was so much hotter! Several months after install, I called the gas company after getting my bill because it had been the exact same amount for 3 months. I thought the meter reader wasn't actually looking at the meter and just marking the same amount each month. Turns out, now I am not even using enough gas to meet the minimum delivery requirements, so my bill was actually more service fees than gas! I'm definitely going to continue to save money on the gas bill. December 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good I wish I could give it a five but was a bit upset at the first one I purchased. Got unit number one home and it had a huge dent in the side. Box was in perfect shape and dent was painted over so this happened during factory build. Sad state for quality control. The store was nice and provided a replacement without question. (They were the ones to notice the dent was painted over). Having to move the unit X2 times did not make me happy at all. With that said the unit was a breeze to install and set up. It provides lots of hot water, (i've had to turn it down twice so far because it's too hot) lets just hope it lasts the 12 years its warrantied for. If you buy a Rheem open the box first at the store. February 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warm water We installed this and it does not heat the water up. You have to use it straight out of the tap with no cold water to even get it warm enough to do dishes, in the shower you cannot add cold water or the water is too cold to shower in. I have it turned to as hot as it will allow and I have an insulating blanket on it. It is somewhat better IF you run hot water for 3 minutes in the sink and then wait for 15 minutes to take your shower... I think this kicks it on and then it warms the water up. I would not buy another one, in fact we are talking about taking this out and going to an on demand. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seemless install, good to go in 30 minutes!P Old water heater died while at work. Wife called and asked why there was water in the garage. I asked her to check where it was coming from. It was from our 20 plus year old water heater. I asked her to check our options and sent me text stating homedepot had one in stock. I called and had them save I for me. After. Work I stopped by homedepot and purchased Rheem gas water heater. Was installed in about 30 minutes, by me! A tireman.Fit like a glove. No problems. Hot water in 30 minutes! Very happy with purchase!! December 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install, works very well Bought this a couple of months ago to replace an existing water heater that was leaking. After doublechecking that the dimensions of my old water heater were similar to this one, I purchased and installed it in my attic (with a help of a plumber). All the lines fit up just right, and we were able to get it started right away. Took about 2 hours total from disconnecting the old water heater to installing and getting the first drop of hot water out my pipes. The standard default temperature setting was hot enough for me (not for my wife) so I had to increase it 1 1/2 settings up, and it's plenty hot. I also like the little status indicator it has - very simple and let's me know everything is operating normally. No issues yet - hopefully it will last the 10 years or so it's supposed to.
