You can specify a compacted/finished material depth or a loose/tailgated depth when entering the dimensions. However, the estimates generated will always appear as cubic yards of loose material and US tons as-shipped (loose). A cost estimate can be generated by providing a known price per ton in your region or from a particular supplier. The SI derived unit for density is the kilogram/cubic meter. 1 kilogram/cubic meter is equal to 160.35860545935 milliounce/gallon u.k., or 0.00075247987266837 ton/cubic yard long. Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results. Use this page to learn how to convert between milliounces/gallon and tons/cubic yard. Converting Cubic Yards to Tons. Most gravel and crushed stone products have similar weights per ton. A general rule of thumb when converting cubic yards of gravel to tons is to multiply the cubic area by 1.4. For your reference, gravel typically weighs 2,800 pounds per cubic yard. In addition, there are 2,000 pounds to a ton.
