Energy density might have been a better way for him to describe it. Fuel with more energy/volume means less is used to do the same amount of work. A good example would be gasoline vs ethanol. You get worse fuel economy on ethanol because it takes a larger volume of it to do the same amount of work as gasoline.

Not sure on the numbers
