Fuel Level Gauge Stuck ? - 2007 Yaris Sedan

I filled up my Yaris first time - dealer delivered vehicle with tankful of gas . It was three days ago. Fuel level meter went up to display 8 bars and..... as of right now it stays the same. I set trip odo to zero when I filled up , hoping to measure mpg on my Yaris. Trip odo is showing 100.2 miles
Going to take car back to the dealer after the weekend if no bars disappear on the gauge.....

hey, one bar dropped after 125 miles...yessssss! i keep the mile count on the other trip odo - we will see how far my Yaris will go on a full tank ( will keep few gallons in portable container in my trunk - just in case). i will let you guys know. we live in a suburb but there's still a lot of "stop'n go" situations - no hwy driving yet ( me and wife leaving for a Florida vacation on june 9th). car has slightly over 600 miles on odo - so it's not completely broken-in..... i believe whole "mpg measurement methodology" on Yarii has been flawed and i do not know if TOYOTA played any part in it (fuel gauge callibration ?) - the scoop was to show lower, than actual mpg so Yaris won't cannibalize Prius sales...just my .02 worth of some "conspiracy theory

That first bar always nets the most miles. After that, I'm happy if I get 50 miles per bar.

I usually get 70% of my miles on the first 4 bars. Then it starts dropping fast. It's rather typical. My last car would sit at full & half a tank for long periods of time.

+1

The only exception was my pickup. That phecking thing would start going down as soon as I pulled away from the pump and it was not kidding!

You nearly ran out of gas. You know your tank only holds 11.2 gallons. Unless the sedan tank is bigger than the Lift Back?
