## Kilograms to Gallons Converter

A kilogram is a measure of mass, and a gallon is a measure of volume. The amount of kilograms in a gallon depends on the density of the item you’re measuring. For a correct result, multiply the object’s density in g/ml by 3.785412 and divide the number of kilograms by this result.

`Gallons = Kilograms/(density g/ml * 3.785412)`

The density of water is about 1 g/ml, so there are 3.785412 kilograms in a gallon of water. The formula to convert kilograms of water to gallons of water is

`Gallons of water = kilograms of water / 3.785412`

## The Difference Between Kilograms and Gallons

The kilogram, abbreviated **kg**, is a unit of mass from the metric system. One kilogram is equal to 2.205 pounds or 1,000 grams. In countries that use the metric system, a kilogram is a standard unit for measuring a person’s weight.

A gallon, abbreviated **gal**, is a unit of volume from the United States Customary system. While the imperial system also uses gallons, an imperial gallon is about 20% bigger than the United States gallon. In the United States, many goods are sold by the gallon, including milk, gas, paint, and dry goods.

Since a kilogram measures mass and a gallon measures volume, you can’t convert directly from one to another. Instead, you must know the density of the item you’re measuring to get an accurate result.

## Examples of Converting from Kilograms to Gallons

Density affects the result of the kg to gallons equation. Here’s how to convert kilograms to gallons for milk, vegetable oil, and all-purpose flour.

**Milk**

While it can fluctuate, the estimated density of milk is 1.03 g/ml. Plug this number into the formula, as well as the number of kilograms, and then calculate.

Gallons of milk = 5 kilograms of milk/(1.03 * 3.785412)

Gallons of milk = 5 kg of milk/3.89897436

1.282 gallons of milk = 5 kg of milk

**Vegetable Oil**

The density of vegetable oil is 0.92 g/ml. To determine kg to gallons of vegetable oil, you must also know the value for kg. If you have 5 kg of vegetable oil and want to know the equivalent in gallons, take the following steps:

- Gallons of vegetable oil = 5kg/(0.92 * 3.785412)
- Gallons of vegetable oil = 5kg/3.48257904
- 1.436 gallons of vegetable oil = 5 kg of vegetable oil

**All Purpose Flour**

The density of all-purpose flour is 0.593 g/ml. If you have 5kg of all-purpose flour, you can determine the equivalent amount in gallons as follows:

- Gallons of flour = 5kg/(0.593 * 3.785412)
- Gallons flour = 5kg/2.244749316
- 2.227 Gallons of flour = 5kg gallons of flour

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)FAQ

### How do you convert from gallons to kilograms?

The formula to convert gallons to kilograms is kilograms = number of gallons x density x 3.785412. Since gallons are a volume measure and kilograms are a mass measure, you must know the density of the item you’re measuring in g/ml before converting.

### What’s the formula for converting 50 kg to gallons?

The formula to convert 50 kg to gallons is gallons = 50/(density * 3.785412). Just plug in the density of the item you’re measuring in g/ml before completing the equation.

### How many kg is one gallon of diesel fuel?

A gallon of diesel fuel is about 3.18 kg or 7 lbs. Five gallons of diesel fuel is roughly 15.9 kg or 35 pounds.

### Can you convert kg to gallons without density?

Unless you’re converting kg to gallons of water, which is 3.79 kg to one gallon, you cannot make accurate conversions.
