Formula one engines are and always were the most efficient engines, that is something that technically cannot be disputed. A turbocharger will not make an engine more economical. The strongest combustion that can be had using regular pump fuel is at a fuel to air ratio of 14.7:1. The benefit of a forced induction cylinder is it can burn more fuel than a NA cylinder of course it all depends on the level of boost. Direct injection has a fuel economy benefit over indirect injection. Re the formula one engines, the most economical (fuel wise) are the least powerful and so the least efficient.
