Hehe tnx gardner for the info :). But I have not used an A/D converter. That is still to be used....
I am using a load cell; giving output voltage for the weigh on it.
The instruments used is an oscilloscope (Voltage peak+) and a very good power supply. Even the weights 1kg are exactly 1kg since I made a spent some time putting exactly 1kg of sand.
And yes i think that the last point is bogus...
Ill hook up the equipment again and take other readings but I think it is quite a good almost linear graph.
Another question is this, when you wrote :
** grams = 17.299 volts^2 + 4068.3 volts - 488.45**
How did you work that out??
With excel I managed to get this summary:

Meaning that it is quite a good almost linear graph, but still I need to be accurate in this since I am refilling a cars a/c tank.
