Well there are many different ways of wording it. It could be called a driver stint, stint, fuel stint ETC. At an endurance race like LeMan it would be called a fuel stint because they make pitstops on fuel strategy. In Formula 1 they never refuel and make pitstops around tire strategy.

I think you got confused somewhere, because what your saying is exactly the same as what I said

So when you say a driver at LeMan does 3 stints, that means he is in the car for 3 fuel stops. Hence a stint being the time between pitstops.
