I must have been around in a different body and was perhaps not in to Vedanta then.
If I met, I would have asked him and trust he would have appreciated pursuit of truth. If there were other verses, we should know what Lord Krishna
The copy of ancient bhagavat gita is with me and i have gone through it. An IAS officer turned self-styled god man in Hyderabad had published the telugu version. Here it is:
Nothing much to learn from this publication except negative remarks and comments on our traditional scholars. He says that the prakshipta in BG was noticed by Shri Abhinava Gupta and Bhagavat Ramanuja. Ramanuja seems to have commented on the sangraha bhAga, the copy of which he received Yamunacharya.
So, nothing much to learn from the prakshiptAs.
That said, to "understand the available text of BG correctly" by understanding the Acharya hridaya itself would take one's lifetime. Prof. VK Ji narrated an incident to us sometime back.
When a certain scholar approached Shri Tethiyur Sastrigal for clarification and said "shastrigal ! i have not understood 3 slokas of BG ; kindly explain them".
Shri Tethiyur Sastrigal exclaimed that it is good that you have understood rest of the 697 slokas whereas i am struggling with all the 700 slokas to understand !!
