    Dear all,

    I'm having a problem with a 4 day-old Prius c (9 miles on the odometer) which my SGii detects P0000 and P0455. I'm wondering if the cap (shown below) is the original Toyota cap or if it has been exchanged. It only clicks once... The dealer filled the tank so I assume they used regular gas.

    Any ideas?
    Is it safe to drive?
    Also wondering if the dealer overfilled it?

    I cleared the code using scangauge, but on the next drive of 10 miles 2 pips disappeared and the 3rd one is now fluctuating...

    Looks like the one I have. I'd check with the dealer. If you think it may be the dealer's fault, try another.

    that's the right gas cap... why would you think it wasn't?

    Thanks to everyone who replied. My guess is that the dealer simply didn't close the cap when they added gas. I have cleared the code with scangauge ii and it has not returned.
