    There is a wiki link that tells you the amount of heat energy in various fuels. You will see that there isn't a simple, full, answer to your question but Hydrogen is way out on its own compared with other fuels. Problem is that there are no sources of Hydrogen available and it has to be produced by putting energy to some process for getting it from Hydrogen compounds.
