No.  {naQ} indicates a whole *thing*.  It doesn't refer to an amount of
something.  It refers to a quality of that something.  For the "whole"
amount, definitely use {Hoch}, as the example on KGT page 155 does:

  nIn Hoch natlhlu'pu' "All the fuel has been consumed."

DloraH gave good examples of this distinction.
