Here is a good way to do that.  A pint jar of Kraft Miracle Whip is
473 ml.  

A gallon contains 4 quarts which equals 8 pints.   A liter contains
1000 ml.   Therefore a gallon contains 473 times 8.  = 3784
milliliters (ml) which = 3.784 liters.  

The American Hertitage Dictionary lists a gallon as 3.785 liters and
it also lists an imperial gallon as 4.546 liters. 

In Canada, the imperial gallon is used.  That is a little larger than
8 pints as you can see.
