How to Convert Liters to Cubic Yards

To convert a measurement in liters to a measurement in cubic yards, multiply the volume by the following conversion ratio: 0.001308 cubic yards/liter.

Since one liter is equal to 0.001308 cubic yards, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cubic yards = liters × 0.001308

The volume in cubic yards is equal to the volume in liters multiplied by 0.001308.

For example, here's how to convert 500 liters to cubic yards using the formula above.
cubic yards = (500 L × 0.001308) = 0.653975 yd³

What Is a Cubic Yard?

The cubic yard is a unit of volume that is equal to the space consumed by a cube with each edge measuring one yard.

The cubic yard is a US customary and imperial unit of volume. A cubic yard is sometimes also referred to as a cubic yd. Cubic yards can be abbreviated as yd³, and are also sometimes abbreviated as cu yard, cu yd, or CY. For example, 1 cubic yard can be written as 1 yd³, 1 cu yard, 1 cu yd, or 1 CY.

You can calculate volume using a cubic yardage calculator if you have the dimensions of a space or object.
