Will never work...

Reminds me of a good friend of mine who wants me to help him build his "air car" that runs on compressed air driving a large "impact gun" type of device to drive the wheels. He envisions a large onboard air compressor to propel the compressed air motor. I tried to explain to him that this thing would have so many losses in the transfer of energy from gasoline to compressor to motor but it didn't sink in. This car is similar in that it will take way too many resources to compress the air to drive the car.

Beware the cult of "government"...
