What Is Hydrogen?
Hydrogen is a domestic fuel and can be locally sourced. It provides a high energy storage density compared to current battery technologies (NiMH and Li-ion) which allows for long range and fast refills, and just like electricity, it can be manufactured using renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and biogas from landfills.
How Do I Fuel The Car?
A hydrogen dispenser looks like a gasoline dispenser. Most dispensers have two hoses one for H35 (half fill in Mirai) and one for H70 (full fill in Mirai). Putting hydrogen into a fuel tank is similar to dispensing CNG or filling a propane tank and sounds like filling a tire with air. The driver connects the nozzle to the vehicle’s receptacle and engages the nozzle’s lock to form a tight seal. The station then performs a system check and afterward the fuel begins to flow. When the tank is full the dispenser stops, and you unlock the nozzle and place back on the pump just like with gasoline. Filling the tank takes about as long as a gasoline tank (up to 5 minutes depending on how much fuel is needed).
Where Is My Nearest Fueling Station?
For a full list of Mirai ready stations check out the Fuel Station Map.
Can I Fuel At Any Hydrogen Station?
No. Mirai is a hydrogen-powered vehicle that must be fueled at a hydrogen station conforming with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) fueling interface protocols, or government regulations that may supersede such SAE protocols. For your ease, please refer to www.toyota.com/mirai/stations.html for a full list of stations that are in conformance. FAILURE TO FUEL WITH HYDROGEN AT A HYDROGEN FUELING STATION THAT CONFORMS TO THE SAE FUELING INTERFACE PROTOCOLS MAY VOID THE WARRANTY.
What If My Most Convenient Fuel Station Is Not Constructed On Time?
We will provide you with the most up-to-date information available on fuel station construction. Please refer to the Stations Page to find updates on stations in your area. If your local station is delayed, we will inform you regarding fuel station updates.
How Much Will Fuel Cost?
Refueling costs will depend on the cost of hydrogen at each refueling station. Different technologies are used to produce hydrogen, each with a different cost, and stations set their own price accordingly. While prices have been as low as $10 per kilogram (Kg), typically, prices have been in the range of $12 - $17/Kg. Costs are expected to lower as infrastructure continues to develop. To support our customers, Toyota is providing complimentary hydrogen fuel for three years, or $15,000 maximum, whichever comes first. Limitations may apply.

*Complimentary fuel for three years or $15,000 maximum, whichever comes first. The three-year period starts on the date of card activation or 90 days after vehicle sale or lease commencement date, whichever is earlier. Fuel card is nontransferable. Mirai is a hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle that must be fueled at hydrogen stations conforming to the latest SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS (SAE) hydrogen fueling interface protocol standards or laws that may supersede such SAE standards. Refer to Mirai Hydrogen Stations Locator App in Entune, http://www.toyota.com/entune/, or call Toyota customer service at 800-331-4331 for information on hydrogen fueling stations available to Mirai.
Will I Save Money On Gas?
It depends. We anticipate that as the infrastructure continues to grow the cost of hydrogen will continue to decrease. Hydrogen is a domestic fuel and can be locally sourced and manufactured in a cost-effective way.
Can I Use My Credit Card To Buy Fuel?
Yes, all the retail SAE hydrogen stations will support credit card purchases for fuel.
How Long Does It Take To Fill Up?
Approximately 5 minutes to fill up from empty. Shorter if you need less fuel just like refueling a gasoline vehicle.
What If I Run Out Of Fuel?
