    I just hit 20,000 miles and my Hybrid System Indicator Trip B which has my historical data was reset to zero.

    When I got to the first 10,000 miles it did the same thing but at that time I thought I reset it by mistake.

    If this is true, that's unfortunate, because I was planning using trip B to track MPG from new. :(

    That's why Visicalc, Lotus 123, and Excel were invented. Then, of course, there's pencil and paper :)

    When I hit 10,000 mine simply dropped the first digit off the odometer readout on B which is my lifetime. So 10,000 actually read 0000. But it kept on ticking without the first digit. When I hit 20,000 the exact same thing happened.

    Your readout is still counting....you just have to mentally put the 1 or 2 back in the front of it.

    In other words, it is a five digit odometer- zeros out after 9999.9 ;) In the old days, cars used to do this with mechanical odometers at 99,999.9 in the days before trip odometers and all the electronics we have today.

    Yes either Trip A or B if it hits 10,000 miles.

    The info below is from the Prius User Guide:

    "There are two storage meters available, trip “A” and “B”. Each accumulates separate results. Drivers find this handy for tracking a variety of conditions. You can reset whenever you want… each trip, when the tank is refilled, or just leave it to collect up to 10,000 miles of data."

    I just passed 10,000 and everything stayed the same and is working except Miles went to zero. I think they did not put any more digits for odo in the trip a/b functions so, that is the only thing that went back to zero. I guess just remember that you have to add 10,000 miles to your new total. So just the miles reset. :)

    haha, I blew up the service writer at our dealership because I thought they did it after I gave specific instructions not to on our previous service. I supose a apology is in order when I take it in next.

    We shouldn't judge, should we?

    My first suspect was the service department too. I didn't understand why my Trip B was exactly 10,000 off from the odometer reading the first time around.
