An energy solution pulled from thin air?

You’ve probably heard of cars that run on gasoline or electricity, but how about only air? Sound too good to be true? Well believe it or not, a company called Zero Pollution motors has devised such a car, and is betting consumers will soon be willing to fork over $20,000 to get one. As reported in the Environmental News Network, the technology has been around for some time and relies on compressed air to power old-fashioned car engine pistons. Although it can only go 60 miles on one tank of air, technicians have engineered a small motor that can pull in air to keep the pressure tank full while driving, and get a whopping 106 mpg to boot. Seems like this company pulled a solution to our energy problems, literally, right out of thin air!
