Toyota Prius Engine Oil Capacity

Changing the oil in a Toyota Prius is quite simple and can be done with a minimum of tools in less than half an hour. Just because the Prius is a hybrid—that is, it uses both gas and electricity — doesn’t mean that changing the oil should be any different than a typical non-hybrid car.

By the way, I promise you won’t be shocked by changing the oil! The Prius doesn’t require any special tools or oil that can only be purchased from a dealership. You can buy the oil filter and oil from your local auto parts store or by following our Amazon links.

How Much Oil Does a Toyota Prius Take?

The 2022 Toyota Prius with the 1.8L 4-cyl engine (engine code 2ZR-FXE) takes 4.4 quarts (with filter) of 0W-16 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

The oil change on these late-model Toyota Prius usually takes around 25-35 minutes. Using a car lift and having all your parts and tools lined out in a clean work area will make the job even faster.

Before starting, ensure you have all the necessary parts and tools to complete the oil change. These are listed above. You may need to purchase some tools the first time you perform this oil change yourself, but they are a worthwhile investment that you can repeatedly use throughout your vehicle(s) life.
