    Here is a link to a discussion on this:

    Fuel Filling Problem | PriusChat

    This has happened to me twice in 200 fill ups.

    Had It not been for Prius Chat and threads like this one, I would have been in pickle.

    Thanks - yes, I think that refers only to the US models, as ours doesn't have the same mechanism. I wonder - seeing this thread has been inactive for over 12 months if the TSB has solved everyone's problem?

    Thanks ATHiker. I’m almost always the one to refill the Prius...and, I’m careful with the fuel door switch. Good information, though.

    Like you, I'm retired. Can't hike in the mountains, bicycle or walk very far, like I used to. With my binoculars, spotting scopes, camera & four economy cars, I take good advantage of my lovely Washington state.

    Good for you! Washington is beautiful. I own a small cabin on the eastern side near the Canadian border that I try to get up to occasionally... nice country.

    Did one semester overseas in the UK, Cambridge. Got my first dose of Turkish coffee there. Whoa. akin to rye whisky ..... it does take a few hits to get used to.

    I've not run into it - though it sounds a little ... strong. Reminds me of the old fashioned percolator which I used 40 years ago - which worked fine on an electric stovetop and removed. But we moved to a home with a slow combustion (wood) stove, and I'd tend to leave it on the back corner of the cooktop - it got quite strong by the last cup. But smelled glorious as it gently plop-plop-plop-ed away.
