Translate to ton-miles. That, at least, provides context.

Payload expressed as tons (percentage thereof) X fuel burn

1,280-lbs payload my pickup
with driver X 20-mpg (@70) = 10 ton/miles per gallon.

150-lb EM’er X 45-mpg (@70) = 3.3 ton/miles per gallon.

When I hitch the trailer (8k), it shoots to over 60 with four passengers also present.

Four persons uncomfortably aboard
an air-conditioned go kart hits a staggering
21 T/M gallon.

Loserville is a town of single person vehicles.
Fuel burn or fuel type just doesn’t matter.
