    The oil crisis may soon be over

    There is a car that is about to be released in the US, that could END our oil problems. I saw this on the discovery channel about a year ago, but I have just learned that plans are being made to produce it this year in the US. It cost's about $2 to fill up and has a maximum range of 800 miles. It has 0 emissions when driven below 35 mph, and almost 0 when driven above that. It runs on compressed air. You only have to change the oil every 31,000 miles.

    When I saw this on Discovery, I truly believed it could work. Now looking at the website, I think it's finally about to happen.

    This car is reasonably priced too, it's less than $18,000 for the 6 seater.

    I've signed up to be notified of any future updates and if this pans out to be as good as it sounds I will buy one.

    Don't believe me? Look for yourself.

    Lol. That looks terrible lol. Couldn't they have made a more attractive design? That looks worse than a scion, and I didn't think it got worse than a scion.

    But, if it does happen, a farting car would be cool.

    I hope so the economy is starting to flush down the toilet ....
    Seems very possible for popularity they need a better look though ...
    I bet for the city where weaker low HP cars are great they will be great unless they do more innovating.

    It's look is it's biggest negative. But for the money, I'll save, I can live with it.

    And nothing is uglier than a scion.

    Interesting car worth it if it I guess, but I think I'll wait awhile to before buying one just incase there's a problem I'm always cautious with things like this.

    "Can't they make a fuel efficient car that doesn't look like a gay spaceship?"

    -some comedian who's name I don't remember

    Anyway, this car isn't that much more weird looking than my Ford Focus, so it wouldn't bother me a lot to drive this.

    The only thing bad thing about things like compressed air, hydrogen, and the likes is that they're all really dangerous. Gasoline is to a degree but it's no where near as bad as the alternatives. With compressed air you'd basically be riding around with a bomb strapped to your car.
