We study numerically the process of energy transports in Toda lattices with quasiperiodic on-site potentials. The total energy was initially equidistributed the 10% of lowest frequency linear modes. For Toda model without on-site potentials, only several new low frequency modes are excited, but the energy equipartition is not achieved. When the quasiperiodic on-site potentials are added, the energy transfers continuously to the high frequency modes and finally evolves towards energy

In the thermodynamic limit, the dependence of T eq on ѓ is found to display a power law behaviour, that is, a eq T H v . The exponenet a is found to be -2.03 and is independent of the values of Į and į.
