Examples:

  • The fuel consumption of cars is measured in liters per 100 km
  • The fuel consumption of machines is measured in kW per hour or simply kW
  • The fuel consumption of lawn mowers is measured in kW
  • The fuel consumption of cargo transportations is often measured in liters per ton km
