Take a lightweight small aeroplane, swap out the WWI era magnetos that run the engine for the modern fuel injections system in your car and get 100mpg

I read that article when it came out. Quite impressive!
With expense being a big issue for most general aviation pilots, one has to wonder why engine manufacturers didn't adopt the EFI/FADEC approach years ago. Better still, turbocharged diesels show even more promise in terms of greater power throughout the climb and on hot, highaltitude takeoffs, while delivering better efficiency for any given velocity at altitude.
