Huh? Are you asking how many liters are in a gallon? Liter (or litre, spelling varies) is a metric system of measuring volume. A gallon is the American version of measuring volume. 3.7 liters = 1 gallon.

Well thats the first time I have been told what the US litre to gallon system is, even though I have asked many times when I was lookin into importing tanks lol, but the Uk is 4.5l (4.45l to be more accurate) is a gallon.

I was going to say, fair enough question.

UK and US gallons are VERY different. Assumably everyone round here talks in US, seeing as how the UK have gone metric (liters)?
