Wouldn't it be a straight linear trend of fuel amount required per HP load?

Of course, it would have to be measured on the same engine so that differences in efficiency do not influence the fuel used.
It would vary depending on where in the engine's efficiency range it is, which is RPM and throttle dependant. (Ie the engine might be 20% efficient at 3200 rpm at 50% throttle, but only 10% efficient at 2400 rpm and 25% throttle)
