Knowing how many Quarts are in a Gallon can be very useful to the cooks and bakers to measure your fluids but beware, there’s a difference between the US units and the classic Imperial Units.
What’s A Gallon?
Gallons are a unit of measure that is commonly used in the USA and in parts of the Commonwealth. It used to be extensively used in continental Europe before the introduction of the Metric System.
There have been several dozen different definitions of a Gallon, leading to varied regional measurements reaching from 3.5 Liters for a Roman Gallon all the way to 4.62 Liters for a Treasury Gallon.
Today, there are two Gallons still commonly used:
- US Gallon which contains 3.785 Liters
- Imperial Gallon which contains 4.546 Liters
A Gallon, regardless of its origin, is defined as 8 pints or 4 quarts.
What’s A Quart?
A Quart (qt) is defined as a quarter of a Gallon.
As a result, there’s a difference between a US Quart and an Imperial Quart.

The US System of Measures also defines a Dry Quart, which is equivalent to 1/32 Bushels or 2 US Dry Pints, or 1.101 Liters.
