Still reassembling, guys. I'm looking hard at building in better MPG methods:

If gasoline engines are not much more than 50% efficiency, then I want to dig deeper into what it takes to get mine to that level at least. Once I get that or better, I'll go slow, starting with an Advance Timing Curve Kit from Mr. Gasket to get peak torque and RPMs in the common ranges that the engine needs. That should give me a 10% boost in HP, maybe 15% in torque, and possibly 20% in MPG improvement.

Next will be straight water injection - maybe needing another tweak to the Timing Curve, and a bit more efficiency - 8%? or more.

Then I'll look at a Hydrogen booster building project.

That's my plan anyway.

Nothing replaces common-sense. It just seems to be a commonly scarce commodity.
