Before answering how many liters are in a gallon, let’s understand about what is gallons and their types.

The gallon (gal) is a measurement unit used to determine liquid capacity.

The word gallon comes from Latin word “Galila” which is the name of a wine vessel that was used in the Mediterranean countries. The precursor of Galilos was “Litra” which was invented by the Greeks around the 5th century BC.

It is used in both the US customary and the British imperial measurement systems. Today’s gallons come in three distinct sizes.

## The Imperial Gallon

The imperial gallon, often known as the UK gallon, is a measuring unit that equals 4.54609 liters or 277.42 cubic inches. It is widely used in Commonwealth countries and certain Caribbean countries. The imperial gallon had first been calculated by using 10 pounds, which is equals 4.54 kilogrammes of water/ liquid at 17 degrees Celsius. The imperial fluid ounce is equivalent to 1/60 imperial gallon. In imperial fluid ounces a gallons is usually divided into four quarts, and each quarts of which contains two pints of 20 imperial fluid ounces.

## US Liquid Gallon

3.7854 liters or 231 cubic inches equals to 1 US gallon.A US liquid gallon of water weighs 3.78 kgs or 8.34 pounds at 62°F (17°C). When compared to the imperial gallon, it is 16.6% lighter. A US gallon is divided into four quarts, each quart into two pints, and each pint holds 16 US fluid ounces, precisely like an imperial gallon. As a result, a US liquid gallon requires 128 US fluid ounces to fill. It’s customary to state the temperature at which a material will weigh or take up a certain amount of space. The weight of alcoholic and petroleum products is defined in the United States as 6 0°F (16°C).

## US Dry Gallon

The dry gallon in the United States is equivalent to an eight Winchester bushel, or 268.8025 cubic inches, or 4.405 liters.

Because one gallon is equal to 231 cubic inches and one liters is the volume of 1 kg of water or fluid (1000 mL or 61.0237 cubic inches), and there are 3.78 liter’s in a gallon.

## Global Usage Of Gallons

The imperial gallon is the volume of a pint of water to which has been added one pound of pure distilled water until the mass of the two liquids equals that of an imperial pound (international avoirdupois pound). The imperial gallon was used in the United Kingdom until 20th century, it was used as a unit of capacity or volume in some Commonwealth countries and former British Empire dependencies. Its importance declined with the advent of metrication and was finally removed from official use on January 1, 1995. It is still found in some contexts where it is informally called a gas-gallon (or gas-g or petrol-gallon) because at 0° C one imperial gallon is slightly less than one US liquid gallon (1.200974 L) [0.833798 L] = 1.105092 US gallons [1 U.S. liquid gal.]
