    I mean the fuel bladder that the US cars have.

    Thanks.

    Hi Victor,
    As far as I know the Oz Prius is the same specs as Euro model and doesn't have the bladder.
    There is a full comparison specs sheet somewhere but can't remember where at the moment.

    Regards,

    Victor,
    Found the list. I was wrong - the Eu has it but not UK according to the list.
    List attached.

    Hi Kenmac,

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping there would be no bladder.

    Am I blind or is the attachment missing? Can you point me to where I can download it?

    Many thanks

    Victor

    Probably ordering a light blue or mucky green Prius tomorrow and starting a 10 month wait :(

    if you are willing to drive a little when you get the car, you might be able to cut your wait time significantly by looking for a rural dealer with a shorter wait list. dealers here on long island told me over a year, but it looks like i will have my car after 2 months from a dealer in WV. (shouldn't talk too soon, i don't have it yet, but i'm #1 on the list at the moment and would have had one last week if the guy ahead of me wasn't so desperate that he took a color he did not want)

    Ive asked most of the dealers around here. There is only 1 Prius for sale, a silver Executive version (simial to package 9 I think) but without the navi. Its an ex demonstrator, 6 months old and they want full list price. Installation of the navi is not possible.

    I will just hope my dealer order goes through quicker.

    Hi again,
    I don't know what happened to the list - try again.

    Lucky you. From all reports that is the worst flaw of the US car.

    But I am curious about the seat heaters. Do you have a photo showing the switches? That sounds like a set of parts that one might arrange to have shipped to the US (unlike the bladder-free tank - sigh). There are aftermarket leather seats and seat-heaters here, but it'd be nice to use Toyota's switches.
