Air filled car!

You've heard of hybrids, electric cars and vehicles that can run on vegetable oil. But of all the contenders in the quest to produce the ultimate fuel-efficient car, this could be the first one to let you say, "fill it up with air."

Hmmmm converting energy to kinetic and compress the air to convert it back to kinetic energy...... This does not seem to me so right. But history will tell...

Hybrids are a nice solution but the case with their batteries is still not an ideal solution.
Hydrogen cells seems to be an ideal solution bit what will happen if all cars emit water vapors in a city? Is this a realistic scenario?
Biofuels are many-promising but i prefer bread instead of fuel for my Yamaha

We should manage to use solar energy or wind energy or cosmic energy and things like that because the only solution seems to be bicycle ;D

I'm trying (for a long time) to prepare an article short off (lots of data together :)) but except i have no time, new gas substitudes appear everyday making it more difficult. All sources have their up's and down's and the problem is to find one suited better and do it quickly!.
