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
