Calculating GallonsWhat is the formula for calculating gallons based on dimensions? |

(Length * Width * Height)/231 This is for measurements done in inches. |

Another way to get a quick estimate is volume in cubic feet times 7.5 gallons per cubic foot. I can usually do it in my head and am within fractions of a gallon of the real number in a very large tank. No way I can multiply out the larger numbers of cubic inches to divide by 231 but that is closer to the accurate answer. |

Thanks. Just wanted to verify that it was the size I remember. I have a shed full of empty ones and it is hard to keep track. |
