### 2. By using the Liters calculation formula

#### Know How to convert Liters to Kiloliters

1 Kiloliter KL = 1000 Liters L

1 Liter L = 1 / 1000 Kiloliter KL

1 Liter L = 0.001 Kiloliter KL

#### Know How to convert liters to Cubic Meters

1 m = 100 cm ,

1 cubic meter = 1 m X 1 m X 1 m = 100 cm X 100 cm X 100 cm

1 Cubic Meter M3 = 1000 Liters L

1 Liter = 1 /1000 cubic meter

1 Liter = 0.001 cubic meter

#### Know How to convert liters to Milliliters

1 Liter L = 1000 Milliliters ML

#### Know How to convert liters to Cubic Inches

1 inches = 2.54 centimeters

1 liter = 10 X 10 X 10 cubic centimeters

1 liter = 10 X 10 X 10 / ( 2.54 X 2.54 X 2.54 ) cubic inches

1 liter = 61.02 cubic inches

#### Know How to convert liters to Cubic feet

12 inches = 1 foot, 1 inches = 2.54 centimeters

1 liter = 10 X 10 X 10 cubic centimeters

1 liter = 10 X 10 X 10 / ( 2.54 X 2.54 X 2.54 X 12 X 12 X 12 ) cubic feet

1 liter = 0.0353 cubic feet

#### Know How to convert liters to Gallons

1 liter = 61.023 cubic inches

1 US gallon = 231 cubic inches

1 liter = 61.023 / 231 US gallons

1 liter = 0.264 US gallons

1 Imperial gallon = 277.4 cubic inches

1 liter = 61.023 / 277.4 Imperial Gallons

1 liter = 0.22 Imperial Gallons

#### Know How to convert liters to US Oil Barrel

1 US oil barrel = 42 US gallons

1 liter = 0.2642 US gallons

1 liter = 0.2642 / 42 US oil barrels

1 liter = 0.0063 US Oil barrels

### 3. By using a table

By using the table below you can easily convert liters to other units.
