Slope of the fill-up location makes some difference in fill amount and level sensing too.
Gotcha. I guess I may also be misinterpreting what the gauge represents. It was unexpected that between 1/2 and 7/8 on the gauge would be just 3 gallons.

If the behaviour of the Gen3 analog gauge mimics the Gen2 digital gauge, the the top 1/8th is closer to 1/4. I can drive almost 2 times further on the first 8th than I can on any of the subsequent 8ths.

+1. I used to get well over 100km before the gauge showed 7/8ths before my big snow tires. Same with the last 3 door I had.

Good to know. I think I read somewhere that it might have something to do with the shape of the tank...?

This thread could also be called "Used Yaris newbie questions"
But seriously :)

My next question is about the radiator fan...
Should that always be running? Or only when necessary?
The one in my last car was always on... So just looked weird to see this one not spinning.

Only when necessary.

Now hurry up and buy the damn thing and regale us with your exploits, not your concerns.

Oh yeah I've already started the process...now it's my bank and them talking to finalize everything.

It will soon officially be my "Blueberry"

Any Psych (tv show) fans here? Anybody own an Echo?
That's what has inspired me to call this the Blueberry lol
