    I know I normally don't let my car get this low but wanted to see what it took! Gas pump symbol was on, and low fuel warning message in display! Took 8.7 gal in 10.5 gal tank in the limited I believe!
    Got $2.99 per gallon here in the upper Midwest today!

    2010 Prius here... Waiting for a 2024 Prime... I have the same result. 0 mi to empty is about 2 gal left. For my Prius on trips I calculate gas stops near 0 mi left. Though I've had 14 years of history on that action. Prius has lots of range after 0 mi to empty.

    PS. Other car is a Jeep Cherokee and it has 14.9gal tank. NEVER let it get to 0mi (though it doesn't say it. Display of miles to empty changes to "Low Fuel" at less than 40miles). Once forgot and drove effectively to 0 miles and filled gas tank with 15 gal! 14.9gal spec?? Not as good of a feeling as the Prius. ;)
