Glad I found this forum...

I have an 08 Prius with 285K. I bought it with a bad hybrid battery and had a reconditioned one put in. The battery charged and discharged normally while driving in town but when I got on the expressway it drained quickly and would only recharge when I braked or coasted. I had very low acceleration when on the expressway and didn't get over 65 (and very rarely at that). I've had two diagnosis. One diagnosis that it is the hybrid battery and another that it can't be the battery. Anyone else have this issue and what worked? Thanks!

Sounds to me like you need a 3rd opinion........or a "real" diagnosis.

I tend to believe it is not just the battery but that's just a slightly educated guess.

How long were you on the freeway when you noticed that ?
I think I've seen mine do that for relatively short high speed runs.
