 # How many cups are in a gallon? (complete measurement and conversion guide)

How many cups are in a gallon? Volume conversions might be challenging to memorize. That is why we made this comprehensive guide on conversion from cups to gallons and to pints and quarts. ## What is a gallon?

Before we discuss how many cups are in a gallon, it is pertinent for us to understand the types of gallons available and how they relate and differs.

The gallon is a volume measurement used in the United States.

Have you heard of:

• A liquid gallon?
• A dry gallon?
• US gallon?
• UK gallon?

What do they mean?

The two standard types of gallon, a US gallon and a UK gallon (also known as a royal gallon), are made up of16 cups.

So a US gallon, which is also a liquid gallon, has 16 cups.

A liquid gallon is now considered a standard gallon because a dry gallon is no longer useful for these calculations. A dry gallon has become a standard for estimating another unit, bushel, for dry fixings.

A dry gallon contains 18.61 cups. But standard practice dictates that a liquid gallon contains 16 cups.

According to Wikipedia, “the gallon is a unit of volume in imperial units and United States customary units. Three different versions are in current use: the imperial gallon (imp gal), defined as 4.54609 liters, which is or was used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and some Caribbean countries;
the US gallon (US gal), defined as 3.785411784 L, (231 cubic inches), which is used in the US and some Latin American and Caribbean countries; and the US dry gallon (“usdrygal”), defined as 1⁄8 US bushel (exactly 4.40488377086 L). There are two pints in a quart and four quarts in a gallon. Different sizes of pints account for the different sizes of the imperial and US gallons.” ## How many cups are in a gallon?

Estimating cups in a gallon is simple.

### Formula:

1 US gallon = 16 US cups.

To get how many cups are in gallons, multiply the volume value (in gallons) by 16.

• `1 Imperial gallon = 18.18 metric cups`
• `1 gallon of water = 16 cups`
• `1 gallon of milk = 16 cups`
• `1 gallon of coffee = 20 cups of coffee beans`

• `½ gallon of milk = 8 cups`
• `½ gallon of coffee = 8 cups`

## How many liters make a gallon?

### Formula:

1 gallon = 3.78 liters.

## How many ounces are in a cup?

### Formula:

1 US cup = 8 US fluid ounces.

## How many cups are in a pint?

### Formula:

1 US pint = 2 US cups.

## How many cups are in a quart?

### Formula:

1 quart = 4 cups.

### In Summary:

Remember that: 8 ounces = 1 cup; 2 cups = 1 pint. Therefore, 16 ounces = 1 pint.

## Measurement Conversion Table

• 1 US Gallon = 4 Quarts = 8 Pints = 128 ounces = 16 US cups
• 1 Quart = 2 Pints = 32 ounces = 4 US cups
• 1 Pint = 16 ounces = 2 US cups
• Three-fourths of a cup = 12 tablespoons
• Half of a cup = 8 tablespoons 4 ounces
• One-third of a cup = 5 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon
• One-fourth of a cup = 4 tablespoons 2 ounces
• One-eighth of a cup = 2 tablespoons
• 1 tablespoon = 0.90 cubic inches
• 1 Quart = 2 Pints
• 1 Pint = 2 cups, 32 Ounces
• 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons
• 1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
