No, Bob, the question was "what do you mean by "gasser" and how is a
"gasser" different from the Prius?

The sole source of energy for the Prius is gasoline.  How is that
different from what you call a "gasser"?  How is the Prius not a

The Prius most certainly isn't an electric car.

Well quoting myself from the earlier answer:

"Thanks for asking as there are several sources that show the
advantages of the Prius electric compressor. The paper
SAE-2004-01-0064 discusses the efficiency in table 4, pp. 10:
11.2 km/L - 1.5L Corolla, gasser with traditional belt-clutch
18.6 km/L - 1.5L NHW11, Prius with traditional belt-clutch compressor
22.1 km/L - 1.5L NHW20, Prius with electric compressor, twice the
mileage of the Corolla
(You can get a copy from the SAE at: www.sae.org.) "

Assuming you are math illiterate:

100% (11.2 km/L) - 1.5L Corolla
166% (18.6 km/L) - 1.5L Prius with traditional gasser compressor
197% (22.1 km/L) - 1.5L Prius with superior electric compressor

Still erecting strawmen I see. So answering in kind by paraphrasing
John Cleese from "The Argument" skit:

Cleese: Oh, oh I'm sorry, but this is the superior electric compressor
'Elmo': Look, I CAME HERE FOR AN ARGUMENT, I'm not going to
stand ... !!!
Cleese: Ah yes, you want another thread, Just start it up. . . .
(Under breath) Stupid git!!

Pose your different question in a new thread and we can continue the
skit there ... or here. You are so my bitch.

What do you mean by "gasser"?

List a make and model of car and we'll let you know if it is a gasser.

Toyota Prius.

Tell us all what characteristics of a car make it not a "gasser"?

Oh, I get it--you'll just make things up out of thin air when it suits

It's a nice fantasy world you live in, Bob.
