dude...the SOLE source of energy put into the Prius is gasoline.

If I'm wrong, please tell me--what OTHER source of energy does the Prius
use?

psssst--the answer isn't "electricity".  The MG/battery system is used
to MANAGE the energy that's provided by the gasoline.  But since no
electricity is put into the battery system from the outside--since the
ONLY source of energy put into the Prius is gasoline--it's every bit the
"gasser" that any other gas-only car is.

How many other Prius owners are so stupid as to think they have an
electric car?

Another difference between a hybrid and a comparably configure "gasser"
would be 15 more miles per gallon.  Magically, I've driven mine six or seven
miles without the engine ever running.  Somehow, some way, the hybrid does
seem to be a little different don't you think?  Could it be it's ability to
capture  and use kinetic instead of gas?

This isn't the first, second or third time you've bored us with this
nonsense.  Why don't you grow up and quit making yourself look stupid by
denigrating others?

Managing the gasoline's energy doesn't change that it still uses
GASOLINE as its sole source of energy.

It's still a "gasser".  It's not an electric car, or a car that runs on
magic beans, or whatever seems to give you orgasmic pleasure.

So, then, you don't think the hybrid's ability to recover kinetic energy
differentiates if from a conventional gas powered car.  Incredible!

Some would argue that, when it operates exclusively on captured kinetic
energy, it has reverted to electric operation.  I suppose this is why they
call it a hybrid.  You find fault with that characterization because finding
fault is what you do.

Nope.  The Hybrid Synergy Drive system's ability to manage the
gasoline-sourced energy does not change the fact that the Prius is still
a gasser.




It's not an electric car, no matter how badly people want it to be so.
