If you're gaining efficiency with a mash out, it means you didn't have full conversion in the first place.
You could either mash longer (if needed), or just skip the mashout (since you're heating the wort right away, which is in effect a "mash out" since it denatures the enzymes) if your efficiency isn't too low.
