    Couple of things I found.

    Having owned my ct200h for a week now I've found two things about it.
    2011 SE L Premier Artic Pearl

    First is the fuel gauge false readings. Tonight it was showing only just above quarter full. I thought I'd brim it but it only took 24 litres until "click" on the pump. Strange. I believe others have reported this too previously. It doesn't bother me.
    Second is I don't appear to have TPMS. I have no special valves in the wheels and I'm not getting any light up on the dash. I thought they all had them fitted as standard. I guess I should crawl under the dash and see if it has a TPMS reset switch.
    Anyway apart from these it's an awesome car and I'm enjoying it

    You can always deflate one of your tires and check for a warning.

    As far as the fuel gauge, it's very conservative. It will show empty long before you're actually empty.

    Tried the deflation but nothing happened. Still need to look at the Reset button if it has one.
    I agree about the fuel gauge. It moves very quick yet not using much fuel.

    The manual states where this button is, that's one way to see if you have one.

    Also, regarding the fuel issue; my mechanic once told me that people tend to drive until they're just about out of gas, so any car designed with a fuel pump that uses the gasoline surrounding the fuel pump as a cooling agent will often see fuel pump failures more often. To help alleviate this, some cars show the tank going empty early to make sure there's still some gas left to cool the pump.
