Green Cars Part 4- Compressed Air

DIY Electric Car

Could the answer to our transport needs have been right in front of our faces all this time? Conventional cars work by exploding fuel and air in a chamber to exert force on the pistons, but what if rather than using an explosion to provide that pressure on the piston, you just stored your ‘fuel’ at a constant high pressure. That’s the concept behind the air car , and it looks like a pretty promising technology.
