Pumping air to gasoline
What about we pump some air by the help of an aquarium air stone to gas tank so that more air and thus more oxygen is saturated in gasoline ?

Dax said the following about this idea recently:

I have a book on the ins and outs of Nitrous Oxide injection and this is a question they talk about [why not just inject oxygen?].

Here we are, from Joe
Here we are, from Joe Petit's "How to Install and Use Nitrous Oxide:"

"You might think if oxygen is so chock full of power potential, why not inject pure oxygen into an engine?

Dumping pure oxygen into your engine's combustion chambers without controlling the ratio then lighting it off would just burn a hole through the pistons. Pure oxygen can react with just about anything, but it's really fond of aluminum. You know about the solid rocket boosters on the space shuttle? The solid part is powdered aluminum to which oxygen is added to create an intense hot fire."

All that talk about adding
All that talk about adding Acetone to gas, got me looking for a way to add oxygen to gas, since oxygen is usually the limiting reagent. There is an additive used to clean up the way gas burns, however it does something weird like adding to much Magnesium to the air, which our bodies can't remove without a hammer and chisel, so we get dementia etc. https://www.epa.gov/otaq/rfg.htm#Fact They actually LIMIT the amount of this that can be added to gas, to something like a 1/32 gram per gallon. Which is a lot of Oxygen as a gas. Here's the link to Oxygenated fuels https://www.epa.gov/otaq/oxygenate.htm MTBE. I suppose that since the EPA has to set country wide standards, that a person living in a low pollution area could probably add more of this to thier fuel, without putting the community as a whole at risk. Since this is little more than liquid oxygen, it would be a whole lot safer than all of those tubes and wires! Starter motor bushing sparks + hood full of oxygen/hydrogen = Aero Space Program.

I know oxygenated fuels.You
I know oxygenated fuels.
You are right about the safety issue.

However don't you think oxygen chemically bonded in gasoline is different from oxygen saturated in gasoline ?
