Would 3 or 4 yards of concrete cover a 12x20 garage?

Mike that is a good idea, I see why you make the big bucks now.

CJ, when you pour your slab are you going to do a monolithic slab (thick edge slab) That would be the easiest for you. Be sure to put reinforcement concrete wire and 6 mil poly, termite treatment and post hole every 4 feet on center down to solid ground. You might want to think about stubbing out for water and future electric in your slab. For sure if you are coming in underground with the electrical, be sure to install a pipe for the wire to come up in the wall. Here is a sketch of a monolithic slab.
