improved fuel economy from variable displacement


Explanation:
An engine that is able to adjust its displacement by deactivating half of its cylinders is called a "variable-displacement engine" in English.

If "recovery" is referring to the energy saved when running at half cylinders, this is usually referred to in terms of "fuel economy", the measure of how much fuel is consumed during vehicle operation.

A more literal, but too long translation would be:
The energy saved by running a variable-displacement engine at half cylinders.
