reviewed by Jo-ann Caballes

Updated on October 28, 2024

Students must know how to convert milliliters into gallons because — despite the US using gallons — in the real world, many products are measured in milliliters making knowledge of converting necessary to make sense of measurements in day-to-day living.

Here, we discuss how to convert milliliters to gallons along with the formulas to help you do so.

## What Is the Milliliters to Gallons Conversion?

The milliliters-to-gallon conversion is the procedure of changing milliliters into gallons. The milliliter is a smaller unit of measurement used for calculating the volume of liquid while gallons may be used for calculating higher volumes.

Milliliter is a unit of measurement under the international metric system and gallons are used in the United States, also to measure liquid.

Note that there are 2 types of gallons: The US gallon and the imperial gallon. This article will primarily discuss the relationship between milliliters and the US gallon.

1 Milliliter (ml) = 0.0002641721 US gallon (gal)

## How many milliliters in a gallon?

There are 3785.41 milliliters in a gallon which shows how significantly different both measurement units are. However, they can still be converted into each other.

### Who uses gallons?

The US gallon is used in the United States, Liberia, and Myanmar while the imperial gallon is used by the United Kingdom and some countries they have influenced. We talk about the US gallon in this article and its relation with milliliters.

## Convert ml to gallons: formula

1 Milliliter (ml) = 0.0002641721 US gallon (gal), therefore, the formula to change ml to gallons, can be expressed as:

gal = ml × 0.000264

Remember that 1 gallon is equal to 3785.41 milliliters, therefore, another way to convert milliliters to gallons is by dividing the milliliters by 3785.41, meaning another formula for converting ml to gal is:

Gal = ml ÷ 3785.41.

### How to convert milliliters to gallons?

We can convert milliliters to gallons by multiplying the given milliliters by 0.000264 or by dividing it by 3785.41, which means any of the two formulas we discussed above can be used to find ml in gallon.

For instance, if a glass of milk is filled with a volume of 240 ml, here’s how to change it from ml to gal:

Gal = 240 ml × 0.000264

= 0.063 gal

OR

Gal = 240 ml ÷ 3785.41

= 0.063 gal

### How to convert gallons to ml?

Gallons can be converted to milliliters by multiplying the volume in gallons by 3785.41. This is because 1 gal to ml is 3785.41 ml

Let’s assume we have been given the task of finding how many milliliters are in a 5-gallon volume of water, we would simply have to multiply 5 by 3785.4. The result is approx. 18, 927 milliliters.

## Ml to gallons: Conversion Table

The ml to gal conversion table is a medium to identify the coequal milliliters per gallon without calculation. The table below reaches up to 100 milliliters for easy conversion into US gallons.

2 | 0.0005283441 |

3 | 0.0007925162 |

5 | 0.0013208603 |

10 | 0.0026417205 |

20 | 0.005283441 |

50 | 0.0132086026 |

100 | 0.0264172052 |

## Solved Math Tasks: Examples

### Solved math problem 1

Is 2000 ml half a gallon? By converting milliliters to gallon, answer the question

#### Answer

gal = 2000 ml × 0.000264

= 0.52 gallons.

Therefore, it can be said that yes, 2000 ml is approximately half a US gallon. |

### Solved math problem 2

A jug of water is 1,000 milliliters, what is the volume when converted to gallons?

#### Answer

gal = 1000 ml ÷ 3785.41

= 0.26 gallons. |

### Solved math problem 3

Brian and his dad go shopping. His dad bought 12 cans of soda with 365 milliliters each and a small pack of kids’ sports drinks with 6 bottles, each containing 200 milliliters. How much is the total volume of liquids in gallons?

#### Answer

365 × 12 = 4380 ml

6 × 200 = 1200 ml

4380 + 1200 = 5580 ml

gal = 5580 × 0.000264

= 1.47 gallons

The cumulative volume of all the beverages bought by Brian and his dad is 1.47 gallons. |

### Solved math problem 4

Convert 20 gallons to milliliters

#### Answer

ml = 20 × 3785.41

20 gallons = 75708.2 milliliters |
