Litres to GJ

Postby » Tue Aug 08, 2006 11:19 am

Hiya, any help would be appreciated. I am trying to replicate some information provided by our government, so I can update their data, but am having trouble replicating the formulas.

Light Fuel Oil at 46.25 cents/litre. Using the Net Calorifc Value of 35.55 MJ/litre (as supplied by the government department in their documentation), apparently yields 11.29 $/GJ

By my calculations I get 13.01$/GJ (.4625/35.55*1000)

So, where am I going wrong with this calculation? Can someone please explain.

Just to make it more complicated, I am then converting from there to c/kwh (which I can replicate) :-)
