Roughly 4 litres to the gallon.

There are roughly 600 millilitres in a pint -

Canadian or American gallon? 3.785 litres in American gallon. 4.546 litres in Canadian gallon.

Lots of online calculators to do this for you.. try this one
http://www.onlineconversion.com/volume.htm

I can never remember most of those metric conversions so the calculator comes in handy.
liter is a little bit more than a quart..

3.785 is a closer answer

Isn't a gallon the same everywhere? If not, I'm looking at American gallon.

Blimey!

4.546 litres to the UK gallon!

Who knew there was a difference?

Are there not 8 pints to your gallon?

Is your pint different?

This is confusing me now. I was having a debate with one of my American friends on the price of gas. The gas here is about $1 a liter and it costs me about $60 to fill my 20 gallon tank (American car/gallons). He says it costs him $40 to fill his 20 gallon tank in the US, so I was trying to figure out how much I paid per gallon.

The things you learn. US pints are different from UK pints. No wonder I get drunker in England. ;-)

I figured since it costs me $60 to fill a 20 gallon tank at $1 a liter, there were a little over 3 liters to the gallon.

I also have an American car bought in the US, so my 20 gallon tank is 20 US gallons.

Since I spent most of my life in the US and was use to everything being in gallons, pints, quarts, etc, I don't think I'll ever get use to this metric stuff.
