so you are saying you can fit 7.48 gallons in a 12"X12"X12" container? Must be that fuzzy math!


I'll go with 231. thanks everyone. I want to build a fuel tank and wanted to know what dimensions I needed for the capacity I want.

Newer calculators can do all these conversions! Well at least my TI-86 can... Volume cm^3 to gallons, ft^3 to liters, ect. It will also do speed, weight, torque, power, lenght, ect...

Just pony up $120

But there are HPs out there that are cheaper if you don't mind reverse polish notation.

That 231ci figure sticks out in my mind, because the urinals at work have their rating in both Metric and Standard values, so it's listed as something like "3.8L/1.0Gal per flush".

I remember looking down one time and thinking "Ah, so those Buick turbo v-6's are one-gallon motors..."
