1935 US Navy Battleship Fuel Consumption
Aboard the Battleship TEXAS is a document titled "USN Fuel Allowance Table - July 1935" for the 15 battleships in service.  At 16 pages, each one (5 knots thru 20 knots) shows rpm and gallons used per hour for each rate of speed.  I added the additional columns to the right of "GPH".  Also added the column to the left of "Ship" with the "R" indicating a reciprocating engine.

The tables show the reciprocating  engines were more fuel efficient at lower speed than most of the turbines but by 12 knots, typical cruising speed, the reciprocating engines were at the bottom of the consumption tables.  ARKANSAS, first US battleship with a turbine, had worse fuel consumption.

TEXAS vs NEW YORK Engines
Both had the same engine but NEW YORK was always more fuel efficient.  At 5 knots, TEXAS used 4 more gallons to travel one mile.  At typical cruising speed of 12 knots, TEXAS used 13 more gallons to travel one mile.  At 20 knots the difference was 15 gallons
