No, the Civic and Toyota Prius use the Electric side of the hybrid drive unless battery power is low - then the petrol side kicks in.

Yes, it does consume gas. The Honda has an electric motor that assists the gas engine, hence IMA(integrated motor assist).It does not rely on the electric motor.

it starts getting gas when you press the gas pedel like any hybrid, unless the cars been sitting turned off for a long time (weeks) then it will start up and use gas then switch to battery power
