    Instructions
    1
    Weigh one gallon of your substance to get its weight in pounds. For instance, if you have a gallon of water, that typically weighs about 8.34 lbs.


    2
    Divide 2,204 lbs. by the weight of the object from Step 1. Carry out the answer to at least four decimal places.


    Example: 2,204 lbs. per ton / 8.34 lbs. per gallon = 264.2686 gallons per ton


    3
    Divide the number of gallons you wish to convert into metric tons by your answer from Step 2.


    Example: 50 gallons / 264.2686 gallons per ton = .189 tons


    This example means that 50 gallons of water weighing 8.34 lbs. per gallon is approximately .189 -- or 18.9 percent -- of one metric ton.
