Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode.

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

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) :-)
