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.

My version of energy storage is called "momentum".
My version of regenerative braking is called "bump starting".
