# How to transfer fuel into tons

Put the fuel into tons convenient to fill reportable securities. And, of course, it is also more convenient to sell fuel in tons rather than liters. Often, however, it is this transfer of many problems.

## Instruction how to transfer fuel into tons

Step 1:

When it is necessary to calculate the motor gasoline, diesel fuel, liquefied gas is not in volume and in weight units, then as the basic unit of calculation is necessary to take them to the actual density (specific gravity). Calculate it's pretty simple. To do this, just need to multiply the number of liters is available for the actual density. The result is then divided by 1000, and obtained the required number.

Step 2:

The only thing that could adversely affect the terms of liters of fuel in tonnes - is the temperature. The hotter, the better the fuel specific gravity. Therefore, the Ministry of Industry and Energy of the Russian Federation to facilitate these calculations and make them without error, we decided to average density value for petrol. For example, the fuel A-76 (AI-80) the average specific density of 0.715 gram per cubic centimeter. For 92 octane gasoline is set to the average actual density in the range of 0.735 grams per cubic centimeter, and AI-95 for the figure is 0,750 grams. As for the fuel brand A-98, the average specific gravity of 0.765 grams per cubic centimeter.

Step 3:

In the case where it is necessary to calculate the translation of liters per ton of diesel fuels (typically be necessary in retail), it is necessary to use the following formula: M = V x 0.769 / 1000. Where M - amount of diesel fuel per ton, V - the volume in liters of diesel fuel, 0.769 - a measure of the density of diesel fuel at the rate of kilograms per liter.

Step 4:

It is possible to calculate the transfer of fuel to use a ton of average value, which is taken in Rostekhnadzor. They adopted their own standards in the calculation of the density of the fuel. For example, for liquefied gas average value of 0.6 tonnes per cubic meter, petrol - 0.75 tonnes per cubic meter, and the rate of 0.84 t / m3 for diesel fuel.
