A new lawsuit has a suggestion for Toyota. Maybe it's time to start calling their plug-in hybrid the 'Prius Plug-in-every-few-miles.' We all know EPA estimates and MPG numbers posted by manufacturers are best case scenarios, often conducted in labs. But a 40% reduction (8 miles vs advertised 13) is a tough pill to swallow.
