What is a gallon? What is an ounce? Both gallons and ounces are units of volume in United States customary units and the British Imperial system.
Here is a kitchen conversion chart for converting 1 gal to oz:
|Unit of Measurement||US Fluid Ounces (Fl oz)||Imperial Fluid Ounces||Liters (litres)|
|1 US Liquid Gallon (customary)||128||133.228||3.78541|
|1 US Dry Gallon (customary)||148.947||155.0301||4.40488|
|1 Imperial UK Gallon (international)||153.722||160||4.54609|
US Customary Unit conversions (AKA US Customary System or USCS) are what we commonly use for home baking and cooking in America. When talking about how many fluid ounces in a gallon in this article, I’ll mostly be referring to US liquid measurements.
The United Kingdom, Canada, and the rest of the world are more likely to use liters instead of British imperial units. It would be nice to see the US join the rest of the world someday in using the metric system. Until then, it can be helpful to know the gallon conversion if you’re trying to follow American recipes, since they’re different than UK fluid measures.
How many ounces of water should I drink in a day?

How many ounces in a gallon?
To figure out how many oz in a gallon, you can use a simple conversion formula for general conversions. We know:
1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces
Therefore, here is our conversion ratio:
(X gallons)*128 = Y ounces
Number of gallons = (Number of ounces)/128
So, to figure out one oz - gallon, we can fill in the mathematical formula:
Number of gallons = (1 ounce)/128
0.0078125 gallon = 1 ounce
In other words, one gallon equals 128 fl ounces. One ounce equals 0.0078125 gallon, or 1/128 gallon of liquid.
