Yes, in the US we say gas for gasoline, which is what almost all cars run on. But there is no need to say that a car is a gas car because it is assumed they all are unless otherwise stated. Although there is a lot of interest in alcohol (ethanol), and many cars now are flex, no pure alcohol fuel is sold. At most, a percentage of alcohol is added to gasoline to make gasohol, but the car that uses it is still regarded as a gas car. The only other common category is diesel, but few cars are diesel, just trucks. A new category is the hybrid car, which runs on electricity as well as gas, but the numbers are small.
