The Template:Convert/USgal converts units with U.S. gallons, using the symbol "US gal" as the typical abbreviation. The default output unit-code is "l impgal" to show both liters and imperial gallons. Examples:

  • {{convert|85|USgal|L}}      → 85 US gallons (320 L)
  • {{convert|7|USgal|USqt}}          → 7 US gallons (28 US qt)
  • {{convert|7|USgal|USqt}} → 7 U.S. gallons (28 U.S. qt)
  • {{convert|6|USgal}} → 6 US gallons (23 l; 5.0 imp gal)

For improper combinations of unit-codes, the template will auto-correct the output unit, for the following unit-codes:

  • qt, quart, quarts:  will auto-correct as "USqt"
  • pt, pint, pints:  will auto-correct as "USpt"
  • cup, cups:  will auto-correct as "UScup"

The autocorrection will also show a superscript note, such as "[fix unit]" but the result will be a valid equivalent amount.

Invalid cases will link to "Category:Convert dimension mismatch".
