First how about 100% gas vapor??
The claims of an standard ICE only using less that 30% of it fuel to make power and wasting the remainder of the raw gas poured into it is well known. The left over only produces heat that the cooling system must handle.

The theory is IF fed 100% gas vapor it would only need about 20 to 30% of its normal fuel.
There is a limit to how much heat can be converted to mechanical work in a heat engine, lack of combustion is not the cause of inefficiency in ICEs.
