1. I don't think anyone has a table like that up anywhere. You would have to fin a common measurement and if you're trying to compare applied energy you would have to adjust for efficiency.

1 kWh = 3412 BTU
1 gal (US) gasoline = 114,500 BTU (equivalent to 33.55 kWh)

2. It's very very inefficient as an energy source and the amount of energy per unit of volume is not competitive.
