I think I'll start building superchargers for gas station compressors. The safety factor of the storage tanks should cover the pressure, right?
Oops, then they'd need bigger motors. OK, no problem, big stuff is readily available. Um, wiring. No need to run bigger wire, they can just raise the voltage for the bigger motors. Let's see, standard is probably 240V 3 phase, and 4160v should be on the poles. That should be able to handle motors up to 1,000 HP or more. Hope their wire insulation if nice and thick.
No need for 13.8kv unless it's a real big station.
