At 4000 RPM a Prius must be moving along
the highway like a crazed demon from hell.
this is europe.
my 88hp nissan moved at 100mph with no problems for 600 miles the other day
Actually it does make a lot of sense. I'm capturing OBDII data and this is the plot you asked for. It seems that there is a different path (in light-blue) for revving when the coolant temperature is below 70ÂºC (158ÂºF)

That's what got me interested in the car in the first place: I saw a 2010 model accelerating at a speed I didn't think a hybrid could do. I wouldn't call my 2011 a highway demon, but I have caught myself going at speeds way above what I intended without realising.
I found I can enact some fun by putting the car both in power and the gear selector in B (to keep the ICE running) then it's possible make very quick progress when there is little traffic in the way. I wish I'd owned this car back in Australia.
Is there any chance you could re-publish your 2ZR-FXE engine efficiency chart?
When PriusChat moved to its new format, the links to many old charts were lost!

Is there anyone with a OBD reader that can provide an estimate of power loss when in high speed no-load (just about 1000rpm) of the engine?
For 2 Gen Prius I have a friend that gave me 1kw as rough value (diff between 68km/h and 70km/h energy flow to batt)...
Thank you in advance
Hobbit has said 2 kw to turn the ICE, unrelated to fuel combustion.
Incidentally, it is this factor that provides most of the benefit of P&G: ~ 2/3rds of the time the driver is saving 2 kw.
It is also why hybrids that can glide at high(er) speeds have quite an advantage in a hypermiler's hands if the route lets them stay below the spinning_ICE threshold.
