For that you'd need to know the density of the oil.

I found density data for "vegetable oil" as 0.89 tonne/cubic meter. Depends on how much accuracy you need whether to use that value or calculate the density of your specific product.

1 metric ton is 1000 kg

IF DENSITY IS 1

1000 kg = 1000 liter
and
roughly 4 liters for 1 gallon

1000 liters / 4 = 250 gallons.

The material is less dense so there should be more gallons.

We multiply by either 0.89 or 1/0.89
we want more gallons so
250 * 1/0.89= 280.9 gallons

It depends on the density of the substance, which depends on the substance.
