    Default Hot water doesn't last

    I know this question has been asked many times, but the solutions haven't helped me as of yet.
    Culprit: 2001 AO Smith gas 40 gallon water heater.
    Problem: Hot water only lasts about 10 gallons. Luke warm after 11 and getting cold at 12.

    I've cleaned the tank.
    I've replaced the dip tube (which was fine).
    I buttoned up the air so I have no leaks, have a nice blue flame.

    Any advise appreciated.
