Both a gallon(gal) and a liter(L) are units of capacity.

A gallon is a unit in the US customary and the British imperial systems of measurement is used to measure very large volumes of liquids, while a liter is a metric unit of capacity, formerly defined as the volume of one kilogram of water under standard conditions.

**Formula to convert L to gal.**

To convert liters to gallons, divide the volume by the conversion ratio which is 3.785.

This is due to the relationship that 1 gal is equivalent to 3.785 liters.

**Volume in gal = Volume in L ÷ 3.785**

**Example:**

Convert 50 Liters to gallons.

**= 50** **÷ 3.785**

**= 13.2 gallons. **
