One option to improve the efficiency of the gas engine would be to increase the compression ratio to say 10.5:1 by planing the head, and porting intake and exhaust passages. Depending on the fuel available alcohol injection or some other means to reduce pre-ignition might be needed. A local machine shop could do this without pulling the engine.
