I divided 126 x 20 then multiplied the answer By 13 and got 81.9

for many years, my family owned a business that dealth with cubic inches and fl. oz weights:

been almost 20 years since I did anything with it, but I recall that each cubic inch = .554 fl oz weight

I calculated 17" x 86" x 13" (

by the time I checked back, others had calculated the same answer

I see why you did it that way but in most cases fuel tanks are labeled at 90% capacity. The more accurate way of finding the answer would be to use the actual depth of the fuel rather than the depth of the tank.Approx 81.9 gallons. Divide 126 gallons (total capacity) by 20" (height of tank) which equals 6.3 gallons per inch. 13" X 6.3 gallons is 81.9.

close enough ... same info done a bit differentlyFormula please.

I divided 126 x 20 then multiplied the answer By 13 and got 81.9

13/20 = .65 ( 65%)

126 x 65% = 81.9
