Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I'm not sure what you mean as the word "tonne" is generally reserved for the metric ton of 1000 kg.

The British or "long" ton is 2240 pounds, and
the US or "short" ton is 2000 pounds. Either may be converted to kilograms by multiplying by 0.4535927 (kg/lb)
