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.

You need to know the density of the specific lot of diesel fuel. There is some variation between grades of fuel (#1 and #2) and with temperature. But let's suppose is 0.82 kg/L, a fairly typical value. 1 metric ton = 1000 kg, so

1000 kg / 0.82 kg/L = 1219.5 L.
