Liter (abbreviations: ltr, or lit, or l, or litre): is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre (dm3), 1,000 cubic centimetres (cm3) or 1/1,000 cubic metre. A cubic decimetre (or litre) occupies a volume of 10x10x10 centimetres and is thus equal to one-thousandth of a cubic metre.

US Gallon (abbreviation: US gal): is a unit of measurement for liquid capacity in the US customary units. Three significantly different sizes are in current use: the imperial gallon defined as 4.54609 litres, which is used in the United Kingdom, Canada, and some Caribbean nations; the US gallon defined as 231 cubic inches (3.785 L), which is used in the US and some Latin American and Caribbean countries; and the least-used US dry gallon defined as 1/8 US bushel (4.405 L).

How to Convert Liters to US Gallons

Example: How many US gallons are equivalent to 14.87 liters?


1 liters = 0.264201 US gallons

14.87 liters = Y US gallons

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 14.87 times 0.264201 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 14.87 * 0.264201 / 1 = 3.92866887 US gallons

Answer is: 3.92866887 US gallons are equivalent to 14.87 liters.
