2008 Toyota PRIUS Fuel System, Gasoline Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID685478
 Internal NHTSA #10236157
 Model Year2008
 File date28/07/08
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemFuel gauge and fuel tank report lower than expected values which lead to miscalculated trips between fill ups. On the first day, the tank reported full at around 11gallons. The second time of filling up, i could only fill up 8 gallons because the fuel pump sensor would stop at the gas station. The third, and fourth time would only allow me to put in 6 gallons, and 4 gallons. This makes it extremely inaccurate in reporting how much gas is left in the car. I nearly ran out of gas going through az for a long drive because of the inaccurate amount of reported gas. Toyota makes a european version which does not have this bladder problem. (the fuel tank capacity for a european nhw11 without the bladder is 50 litres ) why not modify or replace the american version which is clearly reports bogus gas readings? It's a serious problem when you run out of gas on the highway or overestimate to the next refueling station. Prius 2008 model, purchased 6/2008.
