Dear User, If under the "calorific value" you understand "specific heat of combustion" then yes. With one remark - "fuel" is not a chemical substance. Its composition varies quite significantly depending on the manufacturer , process of purification and other factors. Hence combustion heats of fuel will not be always the same, but would generally have a steady average over many batches. For references, i suggest searching the American Bureau of Standards. Hope it helps. A.G.E.
