Figure 14 has data in it to where atmospheric pressure is held at sea level and air inlet temperature is varied along with the quantity of fuel injected. If you look at the bottom of that figure you will find that they give chart fuel consumption in lbs of fuel per hp per hour.

The trends in the data for the sea level test results is directly applicable to an auto diesel with similar intake temperatures and fueling.
