Microbiology - energy release

Theoretically let's say that both Thermoproteus and T. denitrificans can grow aerobically, using oxygen as a final electron acceptor, while continuing to use H2 and H2SO3 as their electron donors, respectively. Would either organism make as much energy as a glucose-oxidizing, oxygen-reducing bacterium? why or why not?
