    Hi.
    I'm new around here, just bought a 2015 Prius (ZVW30) imported from Japan. I couldn't find in any of the documents the fuel tank capacity. Any idea?

    PS: I apologize if I posted in the wrong place.

    And pretty much regardless of your driving style, you are guaranteed to get at least 50 more miles when the "Distance To Empty" says zero.

    Although doing so when the chief financial officer is with you in the car may lead to considerably more trouble than either stopping for gas or running out of it.

    If you go by 45mpg, on average, you should be able to go 535.5 miles before being empty.
    Plus what's in the filler neck, and the fuel lines....

    I certainly would not want to test that though. I usually fill up at half a tank and sometimes when
    it's down to a quarter of a tank.

    Only twice did I let it go until the light started flashing, and I was only a few miles from the gas station.

    Same tactic here. Helps that even that takes me a month or more.

    I fill up at the very least twice a week, usually 3 though.
    And I'm always passing the stations I fuel up at so it's not out of my way.
    I like to keep it as full as possible, just in case....

    i fill up once a week so DTE is around 500 + - 25 miles. My commute can do 650 to 700 miles on a full tank but never do full tank fill ups, got netflix to binge on.
