pounds?!?
Math question for the day!
I was talking to a place today and they are using 100 pounds of oil every time they change their fryers. They change it about every 4 days. How many gallons is that?

I think it's about 10lbs per gallon, but not sure.

#3




4.5 gals is equal to 35lbs......so 100 pounds would be alittle over 12.8 gallons

#4




hmm i was always told 5 gallons is 40.1lbs we uses to use honing oil and thats what the UPS invoice said. so keninvirginia sounds right

Unit of Measure You Have
Multiply the Quantity by the Conversion Factor Example Gallons If you do not know the density: multiply by 8.34, the density of water (1 gal water =8.34 lbs) 50 gallons of wastewater, multiplied by 8.34 = 417 pounds Gallons If density is measured in lbs per gallon (lbs/gal): multiply by the density 50 gallons of wastewater with a density of 7.9 lbs/gal is multiplied by 7.9. = 395 pounds Gallons If density is measured by specific gravity: multiply by 8.34 Then multiply this product by the specific gravity 50 gallons of wastewater multiplied by 8.34 = 417 pounds 417 pounds multiplied by a specific gravity of 1.2 = 500.4 pounds

ok people ....quit trying to get carried away on a simple question.
If you collect oil in the cubies it clearly states on the side 35lbs and also states the container holds 4.5 gallons......very simple math involved here so lets not try to reinvent the wheel
