Actually, since the Prius can run on electric power only, it can achieve infinite gasoline mileage.

The Insight electric motor is 3 times smaller and is not liquid cooled. Experiments with Mima indicate that the Insight should be capable of around 130 miles per gallon if a larger battery pack was used.

The good news is that the same size "plug in" battery would last much longer on the Insight, so the real world practicality of this modification might go to the Insight. The Insight mod could use a much less expensive battery and still go a greater distance on a charge. :D
