Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

Jessica:

Multiplying 1 minute x 60 = 1 hour, so multiplying the quantity per minute (5.6 gallons) by 60 gives us the quantity per hour - which equals 336 gallons / hour.

There are 27 cubic feet in 1 cubic yard and each cubic foot will hold 7.4805 gallons. 27 cubic feet * 7.4805 gallons = 201.9735 gallons (in 1 cubic yard).

336 gallons (per hour) / 201.9735 gallons (in 1 cubic yard) = 1.6636 cubic yards / hour.
