Also have you got the figures for oil reserves? If use in 44 was boosted by significant reserves compared tp 43, (or the figures can be the other way I have no idea) but could be a factor thats taken into account either way.

Table A2 in the Supplementary Data appendix lists the following quantities for 'Fuel hydration, oil drilling and benzol': 1943, 5,149,000 tons; 1944, 4,018,000 tons. (Statistisches Handbuch von Deutschland; Statisches Jahrbuch fuer das Deutsches Reich (various); R. Wagerfuehr, Die deutsche Industrie im Kriege)
