AIR CAR ENGINE Working model from the Air Powered Car Concept
Compressed air car Engines with motor replacements done and are now driven by compressed air, which is stored in a tank at high pressure such as 30 MPa (4500 psi or 310 bar). Rather than driving engine pistons with an ignited fuel-air mixture, compressed air cars use the expansion of compressed air, in a similar manner to the expansion of steam in a steam engine.
The Air car Engine can be powered solely by air, or combined (as in a hybrid electric vehicle with proper motor replacements ) with gasoline, diesel, ethanol, or an electric plant with regenerative braking.
