If you watch the bar carefully, when you let go of boost, it will slowly start refilling, then after a couple seconds, it will refill much faster. This is why constantly tapping boost is a bad idea - it means you're constantly stuck at the much slower "recently consumed" rate.

So increasing your "Engine Power Recently Consumed" regen rate will increase how fast you gain engine power immediately after you use boost. If you're in a dogfight where you're using lots of engine abilities or constantly reaching for the boost button, increasing this regen rate can be really useful.
This is the answer you are looking for :P
