How to Convert Between Gallons and Quarts

You can use a simple formula to figure out the number of quarts in gallons:

quarts = 4 * gallons                                             (1)

And to get the number of gallons given quarts, you can invert this formula:

gallons = 0.25 * quarts                                          (2)

Examples

Example 1. How many quarts are in 1.5 gallons?

Answer. Let’s plug the numbers into formula 1:

quarts = 4 * 1.5 = 6.0

There are 6 quarts in 1.5 gallons

Example 2. How many gallons are 12 quarts?

Answer. Let’s plug the numbers into formula 2:

gallons = 0.25 * 12 = 3.0

12 quarts means 3 gallons.
