That says air is viable.  It is also free.

That's nonsense.  The fact that the working fluid (air) is free has very
little to do with the economics of it.  The abstract says nothing about
the costs.  It only looked at:

"...thermodynamic analysis and experiment data were used to analyze the
energy density, performance, safety, running efficiency, fuel
circulation economy and consumer acceptance, etc"

The abstract also says the performance of the air-powered engine is
inferior to the traditional inert[sic] combustion engine.

It concludes by saying it may be fit for future green cars.
