Once upon a time torpedos were powered exactly like that afaik. The first lesson
after that was to add alcohool or kerosene and water and to burn it so the heat
of expansion was supplied. And not at 300bars. Afaik to avoid losses one expands
the gas through a machine, not through a simple nozzle, and uses reheating (from
ambient air at least, but better with fuel). I don't know how they calculated
the efficiency on that thing because storing compressed air is quite wasteful
(by losing the heat of compression among other things). However I think that
driving a car that uses torpedo propulsion principles is cool (probably in the
same class as turbine karts - and it could race them too).
