Sorry, you still need to do way better than that. Let me clue you in. If you compare sprinters to sprinters, then, other things being roughly equal, economy becomes marginally important. But, that wasn't really the context. Pick whatever fuel you want, sprinters are uneconomical compared to middle and long distance runners. Like dragsters, sprinters consume fuel at high rates. Sorry for you but facts are facts.
What are the primary factors that separate Usain Bolt from Zersenay Tadese or Derek Clayton? Usain's superior economy? Get a clue. Tell me for sprinting why economy is of primary importance over factors like peak power, and maximum rate of energy production.
Pick whatever fuel you want, fuel economy is of secondary importance (at best) in any effort lasting 20 seconds or less. Fuel economy becomes important when there is a high risk of running out of fuel prematurely.

You are clueless. Do you really think that Usain Bolt isn't running economically when he wins by such big margins?
You are talking about oxygen economy, as if there is no such thing as anaerobic economy. There is, and it will always affect oxygen economy measurements too.
