The NHW11/NHW20 had the bladder tank so no one could really check the MPG display without special instruments. If you had special instruments, you didn't really care because you'd use the more accurate source. Regardless, we're letting Toyota know about the problem. In fact, I'll open a case too, now that we know the characteristics of the problem.

One good thing is with the extensive software controlled systems, I suspect Toyota can easily fix this with a download. Considering we've only had our 2010 Prius for 90 days, I think this is remarkable progress.
