The Evaporative system may have problems with the vapor canister releasing charcoal pellets that plug the vent valve. Typically a Code P0441, P0442 and P0446 will be set. The key code is the P0446 which is a vent valve electrical failure. The proper repair is to replace the entire canister with all the valves as a unit. This is located on top of the fuel tank and is expensive. Our Technicians tell us that for awhile Toyota was covering these problems, but this may have changed. It would not hurt to call the dealer if this problem occurs to see if Toyota is still helping with these repairs.

Window seal arond door frame is broke and falling out. Air leak is horrible. purchased new seal. is there a proper prcedure to replace, or just pull the old on wout, jam the new one in.
The fuel gauge reads nearly empty, with low fuel warning filling the electronic readout when there is 25% of the tank still to go (ie. 15 litres). Also the fuel economy gauge reads high for fuel consumption. At least both readings are consistent, but both are wrong. I see on the Prius there is a fuel gauge recalibration procedure, perhaps the RAV would benefit from that. Its a pain having the readout covered by a premature warning.
