Hi, xtiago -

Good link. One of our Prius driving members documented a similar situation just this spring: http://forum.ecomodder.com/showthrea...ires#post11668

At first he saw a 10% decrease, which "improved" to just a 5% loss after a few 1000 miles.

Anyway, welcome to the site. If you're not shy, post a note in the "introductions" forum & tell us a bit about yourself.
