Conspiracy Theory: Petroleum Company Edition, Innovative Technology

A cow-orker claims that automobiles could be getting much better mileage than what's currently available, via better carburetors, fuel injectors, etc., but the big oil companies find these innovative companies, buy them up, and pay the inventors to keep their mouth's shut. I tend to discount such theories... for one, I think there are too many smart people to keep quiet, especially once people know that something's possible. Can you give me some supporting evidence on either side of this?
