i just think that air forcing a piston to transfer that energy is so inefficient
as to be impracticle.

Compressed air is not a feasable fuel source. It's something hobbyists play with sometimes, becuase yes, as mentioned, it is the fundamentals of how a piston works, and can be used to demonstrate that to kids.
But compressed air as a fuel source? rediculous.
I'm sorry, it's just too rediculous to take seriously. Go get a can of compressed air, link it to a steam piston, and see what happens... you run out needed pressure in almost NO time at all.

If this technology could be put to use efficiently we could eventually use something similar and charge them at home using solar/wind or other alternate energy when that becomes more usable.

However, I think if gasoline were to dissapear tomorrow, millions of people would be out of work worldwide, and this industry does not seem like it would create enough jobs to fill the gap. I strongly believe that is actually the primary reasons governments do not push energy companies for these alternative fuels. Gas station peoples, the truck drivers, the people who work at the refineries and wells, as well as the support personell for each of those sites, such as HR staff, janitors, maintenance personell, mechanics and a variety of data processors and other financial personell.
"There is no other motor as good as ours, years of research and analysing other motors around the world gave me the confidence and obligation to say so. Obligation in the sense that people have been waiting for ages in relation to efficiency in order to take care of our environmental situation.
100% more efficiency than our competitor is a very serious claim and should not be confused with some kind of publicity stunt were the interest is purely to try and make money out of some ridiculous claim.
The invention has a long list of important improvements over other motors.
The concept has the capability to change the method we use for transportation, apart from the benefits of energy saving in stationary applications."
We have verification of its performance
We have patents issued
It has outstanding efficiency
It has constant high torque
It has low parts count
It has low number of moving parts
It is compact and light
It has virtually no friction
It has virtually no vibration
It has smooth speed control characteristics
Only 1 PSI of pressure is needed to overcame the friction
THAT'S CORRECT ONLY 1 PSI !!

It seems to me that this is still not a viable Idea. It takes a whole lot of energy to compress air. As a matter of fact a air engine will only have as much energy as what was used to compress the air.
Hey how about making the breaking sytem pump the air into the tank?
