**The US gallon contains 3.785411784 cubic inches of volume, making it approximately 231.574049 gallons. **

- the standard US liquid unit is intended as a unit for measuring liquids, not solids as it happens to be in many countries. In the United Kingdom, a "U.K." gallon is equivalent to 256 cubic inches of volume and equals exactly 1 imperial gallon (imperial being the British system used from 1824-1971). In Canada a "Canadian" fluid ounce holds exactly **28.4 milliliters and there are 4 Canadian fluid ounces in the U.S.**

The conversion table below shows the gallons to liters conversions for various countries. For example, in **Canada it takes 4.2102878434784 liters** to convert into one gallon, and in **Germany it takes 3.7854236083884 liters** to convert into one gallon.

**Gallon – liters – Imperial – United States – Decimals – Gallons use:**

The imperial system is used to measure volume and capacity and is the most common volume system that is used for oil, fuel, water, grain, etc. In this system **one gallon is equal to 4.546236 gallons or 4 imperial gallons**. In other countries the volume system may be different.

In the United States it takes 3.7854236083884 liters to convert into one gallon and it takes 3 gallons to convert into 1 liter in Canada 5.835921867016 liters per gallon 1 liter = 4.1017609 liters (US) and 4.2102878434784 liters (Canada). In Europe its more confusing and different countries use different volumes like: [Gross volume [cm3] [Litres [L]] [US gallon [gal]] [Pint (UK) gallon [gal]] or Gross Volume in Litres] = Litres

**In France a gas station measures the volume of fuel to the nearest milliliter, which is called a "litre"**. A gas station can have a nozzle for manually measuring fuel quantities, but the nozzle is rarely used. The most common way to measure petrol is by using a device called a fuel gauge that automatically calculates mileage based on engine revolutions.
