• 1 Dekatherm = 1,000,000 BTU’s.
• Oil contains heat output known as British Thermal Units (BTU’s). Heavy oils such as Number 5 and 6 are what remains of the crude oil after gasoline and the distillate fuel oils are extracted through distillation. The conversions to the most popular heating oils are listed above.
• To convert gallons of oil to dekatherms replace the BTU’s / Gallon with the correct BTU’s based on the type of oil consumed.
• For example: #6 oil burns at a rate of 153200 BTU’s per gallon.
• If you multiply the number of gallons X 153200 = (total BTU’s per month) divided by 1,000,000 = Dekatherms per month.
