Calculatorful's liters to gallons conversion allows converting liters to gallons and provides you answers to the questions such as how many gallons in a liter? How to convert a liter to a gallon? Let's do the conversion and find all useful infos in our article.

Where does liter come from? 

The liter was defined as one cubic decimetre when it was established in France in 1795 as one of the new "republican units of measurement." Because the gramme was established in 1795 as one cubic centimeter of water at melting ice temperature, one liter of liquid water weighs nearly precisely one kilogramme. The initial decimetre length was 44.344 lignes, which was reduced to 44.3296 lignes in 1798. This gave the first liter 1.000974 cubic decimetres. The kilogramme was built in opposition to the liter.

Where is the gallon from?

The name stems most directly from galun, galon in Old Norman French, although it was also used in other languages, such as jale in Old French and gęllet (bowl) in Old English. This implies a shared root in Romance Latin, although the word's final derivation is uncertain.

In England, the gallon was the foundation of systems for measuring wine and beer. The gallon sizes employed in these two systems differed: the first was based on the wine gallon (equivalent to the US gallon), and the second on either the ale gallon or the bigger imperial gallon.

                       = 5.28344 gal

The answer is that 20 liters equals 5.28344 gallons.

Example 1: Converting 4 liters to gallons

Applying the liters to gallons conversion formula, gallons = liters x 0.264172, the solution is:

Gallon               = 4 x 0.264172

                         = 1.056688 gal

Answer: 4 liters equals 1.056688 gallons.

Example 2: Converting 10 liters to gallons

Applying the liters to gallons conversion formula, gallons = liters x 0.264172, the solution is:

Gallon             = 10 x 0.264172

                       = 2.64172 gal

Answer: 10 liters equals 2.64172 gallons. 

Example 3: Converting 3.7 liters to gallons

Applying the liters to gallons conversion formula, gallons = liters x 0.264172, the solution is:

Gallon               = 3.7 x 0.264172

                         = 0.9774364 gal

Answer: 3.7 liters equals 0.9774364 gallons.
