Well at least that is a starting comparison point.

I suspect that is not the peak efficiency point ... on a BSFC chart ~26% works out to around ~300 g / kwh ... There are many ICE's including Gasoline ICEs that do significantly better than that ... so While that might be a fair estimation of one point on the BSFC ... I do suspect it is not the peak efficiency point.
