I would assume that'd be the electric motor making that torque..

Uhm.. Look at the AFRs... lol

IIRC the prenius will do 0-30 quicker than a V6 Camry will..

I wonder what it would do if it just got a massive amount of amperage to the electic motor right off the line, like say an aftermarket capacitive discharge type of deal. Probably melt things, but I bet it would be fast for a little while.

Now that I think about it, we should rent a Prenius with the full insurance package and do whatever it takes to get the WORST MILEAGE POSSIBLE...








Then maybe see how much abuse they can take. Might have to hack-n-crack the computer for some neutral drops...

Could always do a 13B swap to accomplish this goal...

Old school OHC domestic V6. Worst mileage per HP I have ever seen. Good TQ though. And cheap.

I drive a prius, and I understand why an electric turbo is a bad idea :(

it's actually quasi synthetic, but made from all natural ingredients... essentially the same thing.

i could make a few calls and hook us up with a 55 gallon test drum if y'all like.

Let's say someone's left front tire is 43psi and the right front is 42psi--that someone being me. Safety concerns aside, what sort of effect could this potentially have on your mileage?

I found my tires to be off by 1-2PSI on each side recently. Obviously I evened them out immediately, but it made me wonder if I could've lost a significant percentage of potential efficiency. Thoughts?
I'd recommend a .44 Magnum. That should alleviate all chances of survival, when you kill yourself.

I found my tires to be off by 1-2PSI on each side recently. Obviously I evened them out immediately and got a massive boner, but it made me wonder while having even more man-on-man butt sex and getting squirted in the face if I could've lost a significant percentage of potential efficiency. Thoughts?

Fixed.

Prius owners are dedicated! For real. My high school physics teacher had one and he was crazy about it. When we didn't want to do class work I'd ask him about his Prius or Bush and he'd spend the whole class talking and talking while we messed around. At the end he be like ****, the test is next week.

I'm so glad I bought my TDi and not a hybrid. Plenty of torque and my city mileage is better than a lot of cars' highway mileage.
