Not sure if I can wait that long. Itching to replace my 05 MDX and money is burning a hole in my pocket. Its been a solid first car but guzzles so much gas in NYC. That new aviator is looking oh so nice but not sure how good the reliability is going to be so going to have to pass on that too and I'm looking for a good hybrid. Also been eyeing the RDX. Buddy of mine has one, pretty nice looking car, just hate that center console set up. Really liked the new rav4 refresh though, inside and out.
Just got the 2020 Hybrid and it seems I have the fuel issue. Still have tremendous range just not able to (I Think) completely fill the tank. Certainly would not stop me from buying the car that I am otherwise thrilled with.

Yes, I am very happy with the purchase, but I only get 9 gallons before the pump stops. In my last fill, however, it kept clicking after every few gallons, which was quite annoying. I ended up slow pumping up to the 9 gallons before it clicked, and I didn't venture further. I hope that doesn't happen again.

Our Canadian made XSEh does not. Our 2019 XLEh did.
Do me a favor and take a picture from right in front of the rear wheel shooting up toward the filler tube as it snakes around the suspension and enters the fuel tank. I'm curious if it looks like mine.

This whole issue is non-event. I've owned 5 new Toyotas in the last 5 yrs and EVERYONE of them auto-shuts off considerably before the full capacity. Very easy to just pull the pump out from the neck a little and fill the remaining 15-20%. Listed are vehicles I've owned, capacity, shutoff gal; % fill. BTW all of them can be filled to full capacity with a little patience. The over conservative auto-shutoff is courtesy of the environmentalists lobbying the EPA not a sudden design change on the 2019/20 models.

Vehicle Capacity Shutoff (gal) % Fill Before Shutoff
2015 Sienna XLE 20 17 85%
2016 Camry SE 17 14.5 85%
2017 Rav4 XLE Hybrid 14.5 11.5 82%
2017 Sienna Ltd 20 17 85%
2020 Rav4 XSE Hybrid 14.5 11.5 82%

Anyone see a trend?

Thanks for letting us know. Many thousands of posts on this forum indicating otherwise and an acknowledgement from Toyota but that's all irrelevant.

gti5notrkt, the difference is that many people can't put much more gas in after it auto-shuts off. In all those other cars, I think you could.

Congratulations!

You scored a two fir.

You assume a condescending posture toward not only the owners of 2019/2020 RAV4 Hybrids that have a fuel tank issue but Toyota USA that has publicly acquiesced to the issue.

AND you have gotten a dig in against the intelligent notion that humans might want to consider behaving in a sustainable fashion with regard to the environment in general and the air that we require to live, specifically.

Well done!

My 2020 Canada built has the problem. Takes 3 times longer to slow fill the additional 3.5 gallons. Totally sucks in the winter.

I was told it wasn't a real issue by the dealer. Liars.

If Toyota was going to fix it they would have by now. Total disappointment.

Dont buy

Yep all consistent! I’ll even add my 2013 Tundra 26.4 20. 0 75%....Except the RAV often won’t fill to or above “F”
Still I would by the RAV4 again. So I’m not a hater just saying it needs to be fixed.

01/2020 Japan-built XLEh. First fill-up no problems, second fill-up, stopped 3 gallons early and I was able to slow-pump until it was full.
