the 12 hp engine on my air compressor gets me about 180 psi and thats what i use to take big trucks apart,  it takes about 3 minutes to fill from empty,  i can not see an advantage to trying to market an air motor that would require 4300 psi to operate,  among other things if my 180 # tank ever ruptured it would pretty much destroy my 3/4 ton truck i dont think i want a 4300# rated pressure vessel in a motor vehicle it will be many years yet before we have developed a technology that can out perform the internal combustion engine for heavy and long range driving,  i'm open to the concept but we aint there yet

vegetarian???  isnt green stuff for growing meat?
