Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

what is the conversion factor from gallons to pounds?

Postby Mike Wright » Tue Feb 15, 2005 6:20 pm

Answer depends on what the liquid is and what sort of gallon you mean (US or imperial).

Assuming the liquid is water, in the metric system 1 litre of water has a mass of 1 kg - nice and easy! But for US gallons to pounds the conversion would be:

1 US gallon = 3.785 litres = 3.785kg = 3.785 x 2.205 lbs/kg = 8.346 lbs

And for imperial gallons to pounds:

1 Imperial gallon = 4.546 litres = 4.546 kg = 4.546 x 2.205 lbs/kg = 10.024 lbs

5 gallons of what? Water? Water weighs approximately 8.34 lbs. per gallon, which for 5 gallons = 41.71 lbs.

The substance or density should be noted when converting volume to mass and vice versa.
