    Default Prius 2011 Hybrid Battery & Engine Oil

    Dear all
    I would like to know what are the things that consumes the car's hybrid battery? does head lights/ fog lights , Stereo system etc eats up the hybrid battery?

    Question regarding engine oil is that as per manual the recommended oil is 0w20 however as far as i know we use a bit thicker oil in the vehicles that are few years old. Like we use 10w40 or 20w40 in the vehilces which are 4 5 years old. So what should we do with the prius model 2011?

    Hope to get the answer asap.

    Regards
    Atif
