    Hi Mary. So what's your

    Hi Mary. So what's your story? Prius owner? Shopping around? Just interested? What do you drive, and how satisfied are you. Lots of tech geeks hanging out here if you have questions on the Prius, including LOTS of information Toyota will not tell you.

    Can't sleep tonight. I'm

    Can't sleep tonight. I'm finally fully recovered from a bad bout of food poisioning. Just in time for work tomorrow.

    Looks like I'm on the verge of experiencing the incredible shrinking gas tank. This week temps will stop dropping below 50F at night.

    Is it best not to let it drop below half, to make sure the shrinkage isn't too bad?

    How full or empty the tank

    How full or empty the tank is, does not seem to affect the shrinkage of the tank in winter.

    You should however, NEVER go below the last two bars. That's when the tank can run dry without warning.

    I just keep track of the consumption display. If I am averaging 53mpg, and have traveled 300 miles since fillup, I figure I've used about 6 gallons.

    For me, at least, the consumption display seems to be EXTREMELY accurate. I can predict +/- half gallon, how much fuel the tank will take at the gas station.

    Only exception is if the temperature changes suddenly, then the tank capacity increases or decreases, and I put in a couple extra gallons on fillup, or a couple gallons short.

    And that tells me if my tank is at full summer capacity (12 gal) or shrinking down to it's winter (8 gal) capacity.
