How to change the price of gas on a 2015 Toyota Prius

One of the greatest things about driving a Toyota Prius is the ability to see how much you spent on gas with every trip you take. This of course only works properly if you set the price of gas to what you paid per litre when you filled up the car. Toyota doesn’t make this an easy process and during my week-long test drive of a 2015 Prius I struggled to figure out how to change the price of gas. Once I realized there was a settings menu controlled by a button on the steering wheel it all became clear.

This is how you change the price of gas on a 2015 Toyota Prius.

2015 Toyota Prius DISP button

The steering wheel of the 2015 Toyota Prius. The DISP button is highlighted in yellow.

With the car on and in park, press the DISP button on your steering wheel (it’s the one by TEMP and TRIP) until you see SETTINGS appear on the upper dash display (beside the speedometer).

Press and hold the DISP button until a menu appears with the following options:

  • EXIT
  • GASOLINE PRICE
  • FUEL CONSU. DISP.
  • COMP. CONSUMPTION
  • CALENDAR

Press the DISP button once to select GASOLINE PRICE.

With GASOLINE PRICE selected hold the DISP button for a few seconds.

You will either see the last price of gas that was set or if no price had ever been set it will show $0.00.

Use DISP to move the price up and TRIP to move the price down.

Once you have the price you want, stop pressing buttons and wait a few seconds. Once the price sets the screen will go back to the main menu.

Use the DISP button to move up to EXIT.

With EXIT selected press and hold DISP and you’re done!
