Complaint - Fuel System Other

WHEN DRIVING DASHBOARD "HYBRID SYSTEM NOT WORKING. PULL OVER..." THIS WAS 7/3/2012. IT HAD RUN OUT OF GAS EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE 2 BARS OUT OF 10 STILL PRESENT ON GAS GAUGE. ON 7/30/12 LATER THIS HAPPENED AGAIN WITH 4 BARS SHOWING. GOT THE FUEL SENSOR AND GAUGE REPLACED ON 7/30/12. 8/14/12 WITH 3 BARS SHOWING, CRUISING RANGE OF 60 MILES AND HAVING GONE 480 MILES THE SAME WARNING "HYBRID SYSTEM NOT WORKING..." I WAS ABLE TO GET TO A GAS STATION BEFORE RUNNING OUT OF GAS. THE PRIUS MANUAL STATES THE TANK HOLDS 9.5 GALLONS. FILLING UP THE TANK TOOK 9.91 GALLONS. THERE IS CLEARLY SOMETHING WRONG. THE FUEL SENSOR AND GAUGE HAVE ALREADY BEEN REPLACED, THOUGH. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR A NEW CAR. THIS IS A NEW MODEL.
