## How many Gallons in a Liter?

How many gallons in a liter depends on the gallon under consideration:

The **US liquid gallon** and the **Imperial gallon**, aka UK gallon, are volume units used to measure liquid capacities such as a tank of gas.

In contrast, the **US dry gallon** is a volume unit used to measure unpackaged materials of large quantities such as coal and grain for example.

In fact it is hardly ever used in *everyday* life.

These are the three types of gallons in use these days.

- An US liquid gallon = 3.785411784 liters
- An Imperial gallon = 4.54609 liters
- An US dry gallon ~ 4.405 liters

Note the **significant difference** between the US and the UK liquid gallons:

The imperial gallon is ~ 20 percent more compared to its US counterpart.

Not only when buying gas does that make quite a difference.

In the next paragraph of liter to gal we show you how to change liters into gallons using the liters to gallons formulas.

## Convert Liter to Gallon

To convert liters to gallons **use the formula below which corresponds to your unit**.

We have also given three liters in gallon examples to help you get started doing the math.

### Convert Liter to US Liquid Gallon

[gal] = [L] / 3.785411784

For example, to convert 5 liters to US liquid gallon divide 5 by 3.785411784 to obtain ~ 1.32 gallons.

For the unit under consideration the liter per gallon conversion produces ~ 4/3 gal US.

### Convert Liter to Imperial Gallon

[gal] = [L] / 4.54609

For example, to convert 6 liters to UK gallons divide 6 by 4.54609 to get ~ 1.32 gallons.

In this case, the liter per gallon calculation renders ~ 1 1/3 gal UK.

### Convert Liter to US Dry Gallon

[gal] = [L] x 0.22702

For example, to convert 12 liters to US dry gallon multiply 12 by 0.22702 to get ~ 2.72 gallons.

Twelve liters to gallon are approximately 2 3/4 dry gal.
