How Many Liters in a Gallon?

The gallon is a bigger unit than the liter. Gallon and liter are used in different places according to convenience. Although both the units are for measuring the volume of a liquid, different amounts of liquid require different types of units.

These two units are needed in different situations and sometimes they need conversion between them. It’s easier to remember the basic equations and apply them to any number that needs conversion.

The basic equation is 1 gallon = 3.785 liters.

If any other amount is needed to be converted from gallons to liters, you just have to multiply the number by 3.785.

For example, if you wish to convert 32 gallons into liters, the equation would be as follows-

32 gallons = 32 * 3.785 liters = 121.12 liters

What if you need to convert liters to gallons? You have to divide that number by 3.785.

Let’s say you want to convert 336 liters to gallons. The equation would be

336 liters = 336/ 3.785 gallons = 88.771 gallons.

The chart below shows some conversions between gallons and liters.

This way you can convert any amount from gallons to liters or from liters to gallons according to your necessities. Some math problems require this type of relationship among units. It becomes easier if you memorize the basic equations rather than checking them again and again before solving any math.

The units need interchanging in some practical situations too. So next time you say ‘drink gallons of water’ you should know exactly how much you mean by that.
