Which brings me to another pet beef/question:

My SWAG is: perhaps only gaseous diffusion in a centrifuge, using the mass differential of the two gases, could separate them. Or cryogenics. One would 'liquify' before the other.
If you managed to get enriched oxygen into the engine, it might just immediately oxidize the first lubricant hydrocarbon it came into contact with.
BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like oiling an oxygen regulator on an oxyacetylene welding unit.
