The answer is, it depends. Different types of bituminous cement concrete (asphalt hot mix) use different percentages of asphalt cement. In Virginia, base mixes use at least 4.4% asphalt, while surface mixes are up to about 6%. Liquid asphalt is a little heavier than water; it weighs about 9.4#/gallon (depending on the source and grade). Here's the math: Base mix 2000#/ton x 4.4%/9.4#/gal. = 9.36 gal/ton surface mix 2000#/ton x 6%/9.4#/gal. = 12.76 gal/ton hope this answers the question.
