If vaporizing carburetors made a significant or dramatic difference in fuel economy, then the vehicles/engines that were made to run on propane would have shown similar/dramatic improvements in FE.

they didn't.

Yes, even after accounting for the difference in energy density/BTU's etc, they just didn't.

Could it make some difference in driveability and a slight improvement in FE if all you do is short trips?
