From daryl: Looking for an accurate number to use when calculating barrels per inch in a a tank with the following dimensions:
Nominal diameter  15'6", nominal height  16ft, nominal capacity  500 barrels. These are commonly referred to as 500x16 tanks.
Currently we are using 2.6 barrels per inch. We need 180 barrels for a full load so I'm trying to figure out how many total inches I need to load 180 bbl. This has been a matter of debate for some time. Thanks for your help. Answered by Harley Weston.
