@henshaw @Tesla Yep

Just got a new Prius two weeks ago. First time I went to the station after (very nearly) depleting the tank, it would only take 9 gallons. Last night, same thing: only took 8.8 gallons even though the warning light was starting to blink. That's 3 gallons off the advertised capacity in the owner's manual. Still gets a good 400+ miles per tank, so no complaints here, but that's a significant difference (25% to be exact). We'll see if the warmer weather affects things with the 'rubber fuel bladder' hypothesis.
