A turbo uses exhaust to compress the intake air with an impeller while a supercharger uses mechanical means (like a belt driven by the engine.)

Once I had a Collie pup. Dug a hole and covered him up. Now I sit there by the hour. Waiting for a Collie-flower.

My e-bike has eco, tour, sport and turbo settings.  Nice to know the depleted electrons can still be put to good use.

. . . eco, tour, sport and turbo . . .
I wonder how many meetings it took for those categories to evolve from lazy, tired, tireder, and wasted?
