The lodge we're going to in 2005 says they measure their gasoline in "Canadian Gallons" and not "U.S. Gallons". Can anyone tell me how many Canadian gallons is equal to one US gallon? Thanks in advance, this board has never let me down!

A canadian gallon is roughly 4.5 liters and a US gallon is 3.8 liters.

No matter how you measure it, it's gonna be expensive compared to what we once knew.

In case you prefer to compare a Canadian gallon to a US gallon, a Canadian gallon equals 1.2 (1.2009) US gallons.

Using litres, we have to use 4 places after the decimal to get the identical 1.2 relationship (i.e. 4.5461/3.7854 = 1.2009)

You cannot buy a gallon of milk in Canada. Our milk is sold in litres.

I too am unaware of any place in Canada where you can buy a "gallon" container of milk. Further, I'm unaware of whether one can even purchase a 4 litre container of milk any where in Canada.

However, paint is typically sold in Canada in 4 litre containers (cans). Even though these 4 litre cans replaced the imperial gallon cans, many older Canadians still refer to buying their paint by the gallon (in reality 4 litre cans). On a size comparison, since the US gallon equates to 3.7854 litres, a US gallon of paint container would look very similar in size to a 4 litre container of paint.

Not that it really matters, but for some reason I feel compelled to ensure everyone that you can in fact purchase milk in 4L jugs at most larger grocery stores in Canada.

I hope I sleep better tonight getting that straight!

HAHA

Dito on the 4L milk jugs being available. Just thought I would throw in the fact that paint in Canada is sold in 3.78L pails. Although people refer to it as a gallon of paint, it in fact is a US gallon.

So why do you sill call the burger at McDonalds a quarter pounder?

I'm so confused I'm almost ready to cry.

So when Canadian guy's lie to woman about length, do you lie in inches? or CM's?

So in canada if a man is talking in the woods and no woman is around, is he still wrong?
Cuz thats the way it works at my house in the states.
