I got an Diesel engine fuel consumtion formulae like this :

Sg x BHP x rpm x Constante
___________________________

rpm ( max. )

result in : liter / hour
note :
Sg : spesific gravity of fuel
BHP : engine power
rpm : rotation in charge
constante: 0,14 new Engine
0,16 Engine's age 5-10 years
0,18 Engine's age above 10 years
rpm ( max. ) : engine max. rotation

Is this formulae correct ?
