Which fuels burn the longest in Minecraft?

What’s the order of “best fuels”?

Example: Coal cooks less than lava and blaze rods, wood cooks less than coal, etc.

What’s the order of fuels based on their ‘cooking quantity’?

Answer

Fuel efficiency found in Smelting

                           Burn Time  Burn Time     Fuel needed to

Saplings                       100           0.5            128

* Number of items smelted per fuel item
† Anything mostly crafted from wood: Crafting tables, Chests, Jukebox (Except Slabs)

Note that the effective efficiency of the long-burning materials goes down rapidly if you don’t restock the furnace.
