How to convert liters to gallons (imperial) (l to gal)
The formula for converting liters to gallons (imperial) is: gal = l × 0.2199692483. To calculate the liter value in gallons (imperial) first substitute the liter value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 liter in gallons (imperial) we follow these steps:
gal = l × 0.2199692483
ga1 = l × 0.2199692483
gal = 0.2199692483
In other words, 1 liter is equal to 0.2199692483 gallons (imperial).
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 9 liters to gallons (imperial) is:
- Understand the conversion formula: gal = l × 0.2199692483
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 9 for l so the formula becomes: ga9 = l × 0.2199692483
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 9 × 0.2199692483 = 1.9797232347 gal
In summary, 9 liters is equal to 1.9797232347 gallons (imperial).
Converting gallons (imperial) to liters
In order to convert the other way around i.e. gallons (imperial) to liters, you would use the following formula: l = gal × 4.54608999998115. To convert gallons (imperial) to liters first substitute the gallon (imperial) value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 gallon (imperial) in liters we follow these steps:
l = gal × 4.54608999998115
l = 1 × 4.54608999998115
l = 4.54608999998115
Or in other words, 1 gallon (imperial) is equal to 4.54608999998115 liters.
