I think a simple Complication would be fine. I don't know how fast they burn Energon (I guess it depends on the series), but I would think it would only come up rarely and would probably be worth an HP. Maybe:Disability:
Cybertronians must refuel on a regular basis. If deprived of Energon for more than a day, consider them impaired, then disabled and eventually dying if not refueled. Expending large amounts of energy, like combat or functioning in extreme conditions, can cause this occur more quickly.
If you really want to be hardcore, you can make at DC10 or 15 escalating Stamina check or something every hour (or less) or something like that.
