    When the 04 Prius is turned on the Gauge starts at one small left bar (empty) then Jumps to all bars lit (full) and starts to blink , and blink, and blink.
    The tank is almost full.

    What's your question?
    Do you know if the car is full or empty at the time? Doers it happen at certain times or all the time?

    No it’s not normal. Gauge blinking indicates communication problem. Is the whole gauge blinking or only the pips?
