Odd Coal Weight Question

PostBy: no74falcon On: Thu Feb 11, 2010 4:42 pm

I tried a search and couldn't really find an answer. I am trying to figure out my coasl consumption and was wondering how much one gallon of anthracite nut coal weighed. I figured someone knew how much a five gallon pail held as far as pounds. Thanks!
