## How to Convert US Gallons to Centimeters Cube

*Example: How many centimeters cube are equivalent to 40.1 US gallons?*

As;

1 US gallons = 3785 centimeters cube

40.1 US gallons = Y centimeters cube

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

Y equals 40.1 times 3785 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 40.1 * 3785 / 1 = 151778.5 centimeters cube

Answer is: 151778.5 centimeters cube are equivalent to 40.1 US gallons.
