**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.**
