First find the volume in cubic inches. If it's a
regular block shape, multiply the length x width
x height in inches. If it's round, you'll need to
figure out the volume of a cylinder (pi R squared
x H). That gives you the volume in cubic inches.
Then multiply that by .00433 to give you the volume in US liquid gallons.

L x W x H x 0.00433 = US Gallons
