A gallon isn't a gallon. The UK uses imperial gallons, which are smaller than US gallons.

Convert US gallon to Imperial gallon (gal to imperial gal) and back:

Volume: V[ imperialgal]=V[gal]×0.83267384.

1.2 > 1 no matter where you are! Lol
You better re read what you just posted.

As acting smug and cocky is best done when you are actually correct, otherwise you make yourself look silly.

A U.S. Gallon is smaller than a UK Gallon.

A U.S. gallon is 3.785litres

A UK Gallon is 4.546litres.

I think what the other poster meant was the a UK Gallon was approx 1.2 U.S. gallons.

Which makes a UK gallon bigger.

I get that. I was agreeing with her. 1.2 is bigger than 1. A U.S. gallon is 83% of an imperial gallon. Is that clear?

And what you mean is 1.2 imperial gallons is equivalent to 1 U.S. gallon. (No smugness or cockiness intended!)
Put all your posts in context.

You have repeatedly said a UK Gallon is smaller than a U.S. gallon.

Which it isn't.

3.785 litres is less than 4.546 litres.

But like most Americans you are unable to accept when you are wrong.

To prevent any editing I shall quote your previous post below.

Yes 1.2 is bigger than 1 Einstein.

But D1991 said that 1 UK Gallon is equivalent to 1.2US Gallons.

The fact that you need 1.2 of something for it to be equivalent to 1 of something else means the one you only need one of is larger.

You have issues.

You are having difficulty understanding the basics.

3.785 litres in a U.S. Gallon.

4.546 litres in a UK Gallon.

Stop trying to justify your mistake you are making yourself look stupid.

Look, you keep getting it wrong. An imperial gallon has more volume than a US gallons. We agree.

BUT it's this way:

1.2 UK = 1 US, or 1 UK = .83 US.

NOT 1 UK = 1.2 US

Stop being thick.
In litres

1.2x(4.546) would be 5.445 litres wouldn't it?

1x(3.785) would be 3.785 litres

Which is not the same

However

1x(4.546) = 1.2x(3.785)

(Note this will be some discrepancy due to only using 3decimal places)

Just so you aware if you put an = sign with two statements either side then they have to be equal.

Say X = 4.546 litres (One UK Gallon)

Then Y = 3.785 litres (One US Gallon)

Then X=1.2(Y)

Not 1.2X=Y

Dude, you did say imperial gallons are smaller than US gallons. Care to make a correction?

No you quite clearly stated above that a UK Gallon was smaller.

"A gallon isn't a gallon. The UK uses imperial gallons, which are smaller than US gallons."

What's your point?

This is simple Arithmetic.

Read the entire thread.

Who started calling people stupid?

Who has been wrong from the start but still thinks they are justified in calling people stupid?

Not me.

That fact a Moderator has started to comment would suggest that a complaint has benn made?

All because a poster won't admit they are wrong.

I suggest before any body else comments that they actually read the thread from the beginning.
