There is no reason to run it on part load. (The Leaf having a battery and all that)

There also is no reason to loose 20% efficiency to charge the battery when unnecessary.

Turbines have terrible fuel specifics. Flight planning for a turbine engine is right at .55 LB/HP/Hour. A leaned gasoline engine is at .40. diesels are around .35, and the big ones in the ships have made it down to .26.
A small diesel will mop up the floor with that turbine in every possible category save one: weight. Fixate on weight and you get absurd ideas like this one.

I snapped a pic of the fuel consumption chart on a diesel welder I maintain.
Its a 4 cylinder, 2.7L turbo john deere and the chart peaks at about 9kw and consumes just under 1.5 gallons per hour.
Also this thing is over 25 years old.
