“It’s a hybrid. It burns gas and oil” (bumper sticker)

“It’s a hybrid. It burns gas and oil” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many bumper stickers.
     
“I drive a hybrid. It burns gas and oil” was printed in the Atlanta (GA) Journal-Constitution on December 3, 2007. “I’ve had a Hybrid since 72—it burns gas and oil” was posted on Twitter by Mr Dogg 2U on February 4, 2010. “My car is a hybrid. It burns gas and oil” was posted on Twitter by daethStar on July 29, 2010. “It’s a hybrid. It burns gas and oil” was posted on Twitter by Valdonimages on December 5, 2014. “It’s a hybrid it burns gas and oil” (shown also on a bumper sticker) was posted on Twitter by largemouth bass on April 30, 2015.
 
“It’s a hybrid. It burns gas and rubber” is a related saying.
   
       
Wikipedia: Hybrid vehicle
A hybrid vehicle is one that uses two or more distinct types of power, such as submarines that use diesel when surfaced and batteries when submerged. Other means to store energy include pressurized fluid in hydraulic hybrids.
 
The basic principle with hybrid vehicles is that the different motors work better at different speeds; the electric motor is more efficient at producing torque, or turning power, and the combustion engine is better for maintaining high speed (better than a typical electric motor).

“It’s a Hybrid. It burns gas and oil.”  As seen on an old Jeep today. Made me laugh.
