Never heard of it before this post from the Socialist Gulag - http://socialistgulag.blogspot.....d-car.html

How viable are these things?
Are there any pictures of a production model?
What think ye?

I think I saw something like this on the discovery channel once. Looked like it would be good for small two person grocery runners.

All depends on how much air you can store. If a vessel could be designed that weighed only 1000 pounds, took up only a few cubic feet of space, but could safely store 5 billion cubic feet of air at thousands of atmospheres of pressure, then it is a great idea.

They're are some examples of them on Youtube.

The thing is, it would be more efficient just to use an electric vehicle, since electricity would indirectly be used to compress the air.

The benefit of compressed air though is that you don't have to replace toxic batteries every few years.
