## Energy from Oil Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Energy from Oil.

E = GO * 135500

Variables:

- Where E is the Energy from Oil (BTUs)
- GO is the total gallons of oil (gallons)

To calculate energy from oil, multiply the gallons of oil by 135,500.

## How to Calculate Energy from Oil?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the Energy from Oil.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total gallons of oil (gallons). In this example, the total gallons of oil (gallons) are measured to be 100.
- Finally, calculate the Energy from Oil using the formula above:

E = GO * 135500

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

E = 100 * 135500 = 13,550,000 (BTUs)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the needed variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are provided as follows:

Total gallons of oil (gallons) = 5

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us the following:

E = 5* 135500 = 677500 (BTUs)
