This short text will cover how to convert gallons to cubic feet and give some practical examples. Let's dive right in!

## US and UK gallons

Gallon (gal) is a volume unit, and it can be either a US gallon or UK gallon. A US gallon is exactly 231 cubic inches or 3.785 L, while a UK gallon is 4.546 L. As you can see, UK gallons have a slightly larger capacity than their US counterpart.

Let's take a look at how they compare to cubic feet.

## Gallons and cubic feet

A cubic foot (cu ft or ft³) is another volume unit used in the US and Imperial unit systems. It's defined as the amount of space a 1 foot sided square box occupies. To convert between gallons and cubic feet we would first need to express a single gallon in terms of cubic feet:

$1\ \text{US gal} = 0.133681\ \text{ft³}\\ 1\ \text{UK gal} = 0.160544\ \text{ft³}$

That means we would need to multiply this number (0.133681 or 160544) by the number of gallons to switch between both units.

## How do I convert gallons to cubic feet?
