    I'm getting a little brain dead. Can somebody tell me how to proportionally convert grams per liter to grams per gallon:

    Example: 35g per liter = Xg per gallon.

    I used to know, really.

    Hi Bruce,

    1 gal = 3.785 liters, so 35 gr/liter x 3.785 liter/gallon = 132.475 gr/gallon.

    Hi Bruce!

    1 gallon [US, liquid] = 3.7854118 liter

    1 liter = 0.2641721 gallon [US, liquid]

    1 liter = 33.8140226 ounce [US, liquid]

    Here is a web based online convertor:

    35 X 3.7854 = 132.4890 grams per gallon (approx. 132.5 grams per gallon)

    Thanks a lot, it all comes back now. I drew a blank today and the more I worked on it the farther it got away.

    Thank again.

    And it might as well be mentioned for the sake of completeness that US and Imperial (Britain and the ex colonies) liquid measures are different (gallon, fluid ounce, pint, quart).

    "...US and Imperial (Britain and the ex colonies) liquid measures are different..."

    Which is why I made that distinction in my reply.
