Following the logic of all that you need a mobile power source that is easily regenerated/distributed, light and relatively un-polluting in use and recyclable.

So what's wrong with a high energy-density fluid like petrol or ethanol if you can find a way to recycle it?

Burning it produces mostly CO2 and H2O. So if a process can be found to extract CO2 from the atmosphere and water from wherever to make either of these it's a win. And no need to create a whole new distribution system.
