# Elliptical Cylinder Tank - Metres

Calculate the volume and capacity of a elliptical cylinder tank.

The elliptical tank here looks like a squashed circle, and in a vertical ellipse shape, the width has to be smaller than the height of the tank. This calculator uses metres for measurements.

##### Approximate weight of Fuel or Water

one litre of water = 1 kilogram
one litre of diesel fuel = 0.832 kilogram
one litre of gas = 0.75 kilogram

Note: measurements used in the calculation are diameter lengths, not radius lengths!

### Elliptical Cylinder Tank - Metres

#### Calculator

- enter diameter A of the tank in metres
- diameter B of the tank in metres
- the height of the tank in metres
- the weight of the liquid in kilograms per litre

#### Results

- the volume of the elliptical cylinder tank in cubic metres
- the volume in cubic feet
- the capacity in litres
- the capacity in US gallons
- the capacity in Imperial gallons
- full tank liquid weight based on kilograms/litre

##### Formula

V= 𝝅HWL/4
where V is the volume
𝝅 = 3.14159265
H is the height of the tank
W half of diameter B
L half of diameter A

##### Conversions

one cubic metre (m³) = 35.3146667214886 cubic feet (ft³)
one cubic metre (m³) = 1000 litres (L)
one cubic metre (m³) = 264.172052358148 gallons (gal) US
one cubic metre (m³) = 219.969248299088 gallons (gal) Imperial
