I agree - plugs can last for thousands of miles....life of tire.

Question tho ...are you using the string type?
If so - just stick another string beside the first ( will take some grunt )

Had the same thing on a near new P3 and the plug lasted the life of the tire.

we had tried mushroom and that was useless ..so our hole was a bit large.
First string left just a tiny slow leak ...second one plugged it perfectly.

I would NOT ride it with a leak that fast....just put a second string in
