One year ago, the fuel gauge dramaticallly changed, going down much faster than the mileage would have indicated. Keeps getting worse, now starts blinking as though empty and still has about 4 gallons in it. The Toyota dealer is telling me it can't be fixed. They did try to recalibrate it but that didn't fix it.

The fuel gauge got stuck at 4 bars with a full tank of gas. The milage on the dashboard is not in sync with the one on the front panel either.

Gas gauge was at 1/4 full and I put 5 gallons in tank and gauge has not moved. I have made 3 trips equaling about an hour worth of driving. My 2008 Prius Touring should be almost full. JTDKB20u987765535

My car gas gauge is dropping 50% faster than normal. It was blinking, so I went to fill up and it only took 4 gallons to fill up - even though it was blinking as if it were on empty.

My gas gauge was down 4 notches. I filled up until it clicked off at 3.5 gal. The gas gauge still reads 4 notches down. Didn't move at all. Turned the car on and off 2 times incase it needed to reset. Didn't register that I filled up. Yikes
