I found some interesting reading in the Yahoo "Prius_Technical_Stuff" forum.


Here are a couple of reports distributed  by the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory.  Be cautious in that a few technical inaccuracies have been
pointed out, such as the false assertion that the Prius has a turbocharger.

Report On Toyota/Prius Motor Design And Manufacturing Assessment

and here's a website where the owner has put together a lot of good
explanation of his "Classic"

Enjoy!

Rather a stupid and invalidating error; if they can't recognize a
supercharger when they see one, how can we have confidence in their
other conclusions?  Our tax dollars at work.
