great - what alternative did you have in mind? Compressed fluid conjures up all kinds 
of possibilities, I am sure, but would agree that water would work? where would it go 
once we have transferred the energy to the car etc?

The main reason I asked, was after thinking about this, and also considering water, it

about half the average planetary rainfall, these other issues would become critical...
