as stated above, use weight instead of volume. The most convenient method for me is Gallon Gas Equivalent (GGE)
Gasoline gallon equivalent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Look how diesel shows up there, far above any other common fuel. It does indeed contribute to approximately 10% of the economy difference between a petrol and a diesel engine. The rest is due to the better efficiency of the diesel cycle.
