Are air powered vehicles possible?

Zero Pollution Motors and Motor Development International are working to develop a compressed air powered car. At low speeds the vehicle runs only on compressed air. At speeds over 35 mph the vehicle uses fuel to heat air. The fuel can be gasoline, ethanol, propane, or a bio-fuel. To see how the Compressed Air Engine works, click on the picture.
