As long as you invest little, what more or less you gain gives a faster return on that investment.

I guess why this isn't standard stuff is it adds consumer involvement in the refueling process. And leaking LPG or o2 in a crash isn't so good. Not that the tank will rupture, but what safety disconnects will you have that stops leaking the gas on impact?
I don't remember the exact details, but I believe the Argonne system had the technology to chemically change the incoming air onboard (no high pressure O2 tanks). The details are in that link.
