## How Many Liters is One Gallon?

**The gallon is a unit of fluid volume, of which three variants are currently used. The gallon-to-liter conversion rates of these variants are as follows:**

**US gallon (US gal):**As the name suggests this is used in the United States and some Latin American and Caribbean countries. One US liquid gallon is equal to 3.785411784 liters.**US dry gallon (US drygal):**This is equivalent to 4.40488377086 liters or 0.125 US bushel, and it is not commercially used.**Imperial gallon (imp gal):**This is equal to 4.54609 liters, which is or was used in the UK, and many of its former colonies.

Although the exact source of the term “gallon” is unknown, it’s very likely to have been derived from the French words “gallon” and “galun.”

The origins of gallons go back to the 18^{th} Century when this unit was the official unit for mainly measuring beer and wine in England.

Surprisingly, three variations of gallons for measuring different commodities were used in the late 1700s:

**Wine gallon**(or Queen Anne’s gallon) = 231 in3 (≈ 3.785 L)**Corn gallon**(or Winchester gallon) ≈ 268.8 in3 (≈ 4.405 L),**Ale gallon**= 282 in3 (≈ 4.622 L)

During that time many people moved from the UK to the US, and the colonies also used these volume units. However, the differences between the various gallons often caused problems.

After the US declared its independence, it needed to set up its own standards. During this process, the original wine gallon (a.k.a. Queen Anne’s gallon) was adopted as the standard gallon in the US.

The UK also established its unit standards, but instead of the traditional wine gallon, this country adopted a new unit of volume, known as *the Imperial gallon* (=4.54609 L).

This unit was a close relative of the ale gallon since the difference between these units is only 0.076 liters.

To this post, we will focus on the standard US liquid gallon, which is defined as 3.785411784 liters.

The US liquid gallon is often referred to as simply “gallon” in the US, while its symbol is “US gal.”

**Liter**

**A liter is a unit of volume that is equal to 1,000 cubic centimeters or 1 cubic decimeter. It’s often referred to as “litre” and abbreviated as ℓ or L.**

Although liter is accepted for use within the International System of Units (SI), it’s a derived unit that is not strictly part of the SI system.

The history of liter goes back to the late 18^{th} Century when this unit was introduced in France as a new “republican unit of measurement.”

In 1897, the liter was adopted by the Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM) with the symbol being the lowercase letter L.

In 1901, the liter was redefined as the volume of 1 kg of pure water at 3.98°C (maximum density) at atmospheric pressure. Based on that, one liter was equivalent to 1.000028 dm3.

The definition of liter was revamped again in 1964 when it was linked to the unit meter. Since then, a liter has been considered to be exactly one cubic decimeter (1 dm3).

Today, the liter is commonly used as the unit of measure for the volume of liquids when labeling containers.

Also, the liter it’s often used to measure non-liquid volumes including the capacity of suitcases, backpacks, plastic containers, household appliances, and even car trunks.

## How do You Convert Gallons to Liters?

**You can convert a US gallon to a liter by multiplying the number of the US gallons by the conversion ratio of 3.785411784.**

For example, here’s how to convert 7 US gallons to liters:

(7 × 3.785411784) = 26.497882488 liters

Alternatively, you can also convert 7 US gallons to liters by dividing the number gallons by 0.264172052:

(7 / 0.264172052) = 26.497882488 liter

**US Gallons-to-Liters Conversation Formula**

**Based on the above, the “US gallons-to-liters formula” is as follows:**

**liters = gallons × 3.785411784 (or alternatively):****liters = gallons / 0.264172052**

**Additionally, the volume of one US gallon expressed in other units is as follows:**

- 1 US gallon = 3.785411784 l
- 1 US gallon = 3785.41 ml
- 1 US gallon = 0.00378541 m3
- 1 US gallon = 3785.41 cm3
- 1 US gallon = 3785410 mm3
- 1 US gallon = 4 US quarts
- 1 US gallon = 8 pints
- 1 US gallon = 16 cups
- 1 US gallon = 128 fluid ounces
