Can we use nitrogen as a fuel

Hello friends,
i have a idea about alternative fuel source in atmosphere more nitrogen available so why can't we nitrogen as a fuel source.
i have knowledge about in 70k temperature nitrogen goes to liquid form so on that time we insert to the cylinder and the atm temperature the nitrogen expand due to conversion of liquid to gases state .

give your suggestion to do this one.

nitrogen is an inert gas in combustion sense as compared to oxygen. it does not burn as easily as other fuels also the combustion products of nitrogen are nitrogen oxides which are highly poisonous and can seriously affect the atmosphere

actually nitrogen is unstable at room temperature.. and so it exists as a gas ! which is the vapor form, that means it has already boiled. ! and to maintain it in a frozen temp, you would require a refridgerator and for that an extra power it comes up to be inefficient !

Thanks friends..... then which one a better alternative fuel for upcoming years can we use in automobile.

that depends on the calorific value of whatever is being used.. that is why ethanol is being mixed with diesel ...also called as biodiesel. Whichever fuel gives u a good calorific value and a chance of complete combustion is good enough for automobiles!

LPG is the old method and to cost also too high so only we are searching for new type of alternative fuel
