How do you convert 1 ccf of natural gas into gallons of heating oil?

I am trying to calculate total usage of natural gas and heating oil by converting our natural gas usage to the equivalent of gallons of heating oil that would have been used.

Heating oil has about 139,000 btu per gallon.

Natural gas has about 1028 btu per cubic foot.

So you would need to burn 139000/128 = 135.21 cubic feet of natural gas to get the same heat as one gallon of heating oil.
