Belated welcome!

I Water-Injected my L300 Mitsubishi van and got substantial (~33%) fuel economy improvements. But that was carby not efi.
Would EFI not adapt to this approach as well? There are a couple of manufacturers doing H2o injection these days, but as a means of avoiding detonation in high output engines, not for efficiency. (I'm sure I've read about a BMW with it.)

future - probably a Prius
Have you driven one yet? I ask only because the driving experience is SO different from the cars you've mentioned.
Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
