Toyota Prius 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 get shocked just by changing the oil! The Prius doesn’t require any special tools or oil that can only be purchased from a dealership. You can purchase the filter and oil from your local auto parts store, such as O’Reilly Auto Parts, Advance Auto Parts, Autozone, or Napa.

The oil change on these late model Toyota Prius’s 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, make sure that you have all the proper parts and tools needed 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 use over and over again throughout the life of your vehicle(s).
