## How to Convert Liters to US Barrels Oil

*Example: How many US barrels oil are equivalent to 36.44 liters?*

As;

1 liters = 0.00629 US barrels oil

36.44 liters = Y US barrels oil

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 36.44 times 0.00629 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 36.44 * 0.00629 / 1 = 0.2292076 US barrels oil

Answer is: 0.2292076 US barrels oil are equivalent to 36.44 liters.
