Compressed air is not a scam. India bought the rights of this invention.
Limited range but safe and most importantly "green". The only "green" way to fill up
the air tanks is by solar panels/wind turbine running a compressor unit all day long on your rooftop
while you are at work. The compressed air can fill the car's tanks (part of chassis) at your garage at night,
ready for the morning.

Big auto companies will never allow this type of car on the roads... too much money to loose!

I read somewhere that one litre of compressed air contains about 1% of the energy of 1 litre petrol so these cars do have their limitations. Aircon would work free off the tanks as they release the air and cool down but in cold climates the car would need a fuel burning heater.

The fart car... :lol:

This type of air car could be a factor in the future, only for city driving.
May not be so funny 30-40 years from now. The wind will always be there but fossil fuels... I don,t know.
Happy new year!
