## For the same power generation, the power plant that needs the least amount of fuel

For same amount of power generation, the power plant that needs the least amount of fuel:

1. Diesel
2. Thermal
3. Nuclear
4. All generate equal power

Explanation:

• 1 kg of coal can generate 8 kWh
• 1kg of mineral oil can generate 8 kWh
• 1 kg of uranium-235 can generate 24,000,000 kWh

Compared to other fuels, nuclear fuel can generate very high amount of heat energy for the same quantity.
