your volume is 6.5' x 2' x 1.66667' = 21.6667 cubic feet
1 cubic foot = 7.481 gallons
21.66667 cu ft x 7.481 gal/cu ft = 162.09 gallons
Use at your own risk as I am not a mathematician,
and as always, check my math!
Hope this helps.

Hi and you're welcome.
8" is 8/12 or 2/3 of a foot.
2/3 in decimal form is 0.66666666666667
So 1'-8" = 1.66667 feet.
Use at your own risk as I am not a mathematician,
and as always, check my math!
Hope this helps.
