Tomato paste to tomato juice conversion ratio?

Hi folks,

Any idea as to the conversion ratio from your average can of tomato paste to tomato juice?

I'm using regular 6oz cans of Muir Glen tomato paste if that makes a difference. I think they're *not* double-concentrated.

FYI I'm planning on using this to cook with, not to drink.

    This looks about right
    • 3 cups tomato juice = 2½ cups water plus 6 ounces tomato paste plus ¾ teaspoon salt, dash of sugar.
    Here's another:
