# How Many Barrels In A Metric Ton Of Diesel?

Divide the mass of crude oil by the density to get the volume. 55,125 pounds of oil = 7,263 gallons of oil in this example (55,125/7.59). Finally, divide the volume by the conversion of 42 gallons per barrel to convert gallons of oil to barrels. This yields a result of around 172.9 barrels (7,263 / 42). As a result, 25 metric tons of crude oil equals about 173 barrels.

## How many gallons of diesel are in a barrel?

From a 42-gallon barrel of crude oil, petroleum refineries in the United Areas produce around 19 to 20 gallons of motor gasoline and 11 to 12 gallons of ultra-low sulfur distillate fuel oil (most of which is sold as diesel fuel and in several states as heating oil). Crude oil is also refined into a variety of other petroleum products. Individual product yields at refineries vary from month to month as refiners focus operations to meet demand for various products and maximize profits.
