Aren't some runaways the result of things like turbo failure, and fed by lube oil? If so, the fuel system shutdown strategies aren't going to stop it; choking the air is the only way.

I'm not sure the n/a 616 is less efficient than turbo 617

Actually, I've always gotten almost precisely 25 mpg with the n/a 616 and slushbox.
City: 25 mpg
Highway, hammer down, ~78 mph: 25 mpg
About the only time it drops is when I run the A/C. Then I...

Actually, not even that is quite true. You will get lower rotational speed of the engine, but the same amount of rotation for a given number of miles driven.
