How to Convert Gallons to Ounces

Scales are used to measure weight

To convert a gallon measurement to an ounce measurement, multiply the volume by 133.526471 times the density of the ingredient or material.

You can use this simple formula to convert:

ounces = gallons × 133.526471 × ingredient density

Thus, the volume in ounces is equal to the gallons multiplied by 133.526471 times the density of the ingredient or material.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gallons to ounces for an ingredient with a density of 0.7 g/mL.
5 gal = 5 × 133.526471 × 0.7 = 467.342649 oz

This calculator converts to ounces in weight, if you're trying to convert to a volume measurement in fluid ounces try our gallons to fluid ounces calculator.

Gallons and ounces are both commonly used to measure cooking ingredients.

For cooking applications, most chefs suggest measuring dry ingredients by weight rather than volume to improve accuracy in the measurements.[1] The density of dry ingredients can vary for a variety of reasons, such as compaction.

The best way to ensure an accurate conversion is to use a scale. When a scale is not available, a calculator like the one above is a good way to estimate the volume to weight conversion.

Gallons

The US liquid gallon is a unit of fluid volume equal to four quarts, eight pints, or sixteen cups.[2] The US liquid gallon should not be confused with the US dry gallon or the imperial gallon, which are different units of measure.

The gallon is a US customary unit of volume. Gallons can be abbreviated as gal; for example, 1 gallon can be written as 1 gal.

Ounces

One ounce is a unit of mass/weight equal to 1/16 of a pound. The common ounce should not be confused with the troy ounce, which is equal to 1/12 of a troy pound.[3]

The ounce is a US customary and imperial unit of weight. Ounces can be abbreviated as oz; for example, 1 ounce can be written as 1 oz.
