Standard tank sizes in English units. There's a liters to gallons converter at the bottom of these pages.

52 gallons, or in your case 196 litres. If you convert the cm to in. at the bottom of the page (as stated above) you multiply in inches (14.2x18.1x47.2) then take that sum and divide buy 231 to get the gallons. then convert gallons to L. OK?

Sheesh...I can't believe the trouble and confusion you're making him go through. He said his tank is 120 x 36 x 46 cm...all you need to do is multiply these 3 numbers exactly as they are and get rid of the last 3 digits in the result:

120 x 36 x 46 = 198720

so his tank is about 198 liters or, better yet, 200 liters for all practical purposes.

There's a REASON why 98% of the world uses the metric system Wink

Amen to that!!! If only the average person had to deal with english conversions on a daily basis. . . the US would have switched by now. . .
