I'm trying to build a water tank but no matter how I do my math it doesn't equal what I need. i have a tank roughly 3 cubic feet in size. how many gallons is it? i found a bunch of stuff onloine and jeff and i tried it but then I tried the stock gm tank sizes and none of them equaled the right size. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

231 cubic inches = 1 gallon

cubic inches / 231 = gallons

If you measure things in inches, use the above conversion so you don't have to convert the inches to feet.

Google does conversions from anything to anything, you just have to phrase it right...
