I just want to ask how many liters are in a gallon? > 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.
