Metric Tons to US Gallons
I regularly have to convert Metric Tons to US Gallons with a known specific gravity of the fluid is there a way to do this

Example SG = 0.85, convert 2 t. density = 0.85 t/m³ volume = 2t/(0.85 t/m³) = 2.353 m³ = 2353 L 2353 L/(3.785411784 L/gallon) = 621.6 gallons NOTE: If you are dealing with petroleum products, API uses SG at 60 °F for both the water and the oil. You will have to look up a water density at that temperature, which is VERY slightly lower.

Re: Metric Tons to US Gallons
I need to have you calculate the reverse:
How many liquid Tons is 550 Gallons of liquid?

To go further, you need to know the density of the liquid. LPG is pretty light and would be about 1.06 t, water would be 2.08 t, and mercury would be 28.3 t (all metric tons.) So there is no general answer for an arbitrary liquid. You HAVE to know the density. If you don't, then somewhere between 1 and 28 tonne.

Re: Metric Tons to US Gallons
2475 Usgallons Diesel oil = how many metric tons

#8




Re: Metric Tons to US Gallons
2475 gallons x 3.7854 L/gallon = 9368.9 L
Not all diesel oil is the same, You need to know the density. However, a typical density is around 0.85 kg/L. Using this value, 9368.9 L * 0.85 kg/L = 7963.5 kg. There are 1000 kg in a metric ton, so 7.9635 t. Since we don't know the density with any precision, this answer is overly precise. 7.9  8 t is a more realistic answer.

See post #8 for methodology.
