Hybrid coolant change

Had to do the #5 coolant change service last weekend, and had some trouble. The owner's manual, and everything I could find online indicate 1.2 gallons to drain and fill. I drained the rad and the reservoir and only got 3L (about 3/4 gallon). Anybody else done this or have any factory service info to help me out here? I had the front on ramps, but after getting such a small amount I lifted the back end up to level, and slightly raised to try and help. No luck.

I guess it isn't a huge deal, but I'm curious as to if there is a problem, or if the hybrids are different. Plus, I have an extra gallon to take back to the dealer. Hope they'll take it.

Mine was just under 1gal when I did it a year ago. Zero issues, never had to top off the over flow.
