How to Convert Milliliters to Gallons

1 ml $= 0.0002641721$ gallon
1 gallon $= 3785.411784$ ml

The steps to convert milliliters to gallons (US liquid gallons) are given below: 

Step 1: Note down the volume in mL.

Step 2: Multiply the given number by 0.000264. 

(or divide the given number by 3785.41.)

A milliliter (symbol: ml or mL) is a unit of volume. It is not an S.I. unit but accepted in the S.I. system.

To measure larger quantities of liquid, we use liters. To measure smaller quantities of liquid, we use milliliters. Milliliter is used to measure a small amount of liquid like medicine bottles and perfume bottles. Various measurement devices like pipettes or beakers use milliliters as the unit of measurement.    


Gallon (symbol: gal) is a customary unit used to measure volume or liquid capacity. In the United States (US), gallons are often used for larger containers, such as half gallon tubs of ice cream or one-gallon cartons of milk. 

Example of container with capacity of 1 gallon

The gallon is a unit of volume which usually refers to the United States liquid gallon. There are three definitions in current use:
