A system and a method for reducing fuel consumption by Pneumatic Regenerative Braking with Heat Recovery system for an automobile are disclosed. The system includes Flanged sleeve (4) which transmits mechanical Power from a vehicle wheel to V-belt pulley and vice-versa, magnetic clutch plate (5) which is energized when power transmission is required to take place i.e., vehicle to air tank and air tank to vehicle, Vbelt pulley and V-belt for power transmission, Air compressor to convert kinetic energy to potential energy, Pneumatic valve to direct the hot air in the required direction, Air tank to store the air under pressure and heat it, Inlet air pipe to guide the air from radiator to air compressor, Exhaust gases inlet pipe to direct the exhaust gases to the air tank, Exhaust gases baffle to direct the exhaust gases to the air tank for heating the air, Control unit to run pneumatic valve and magnetic clutch with brake operation.
