    Conversion help please!

    How can I convert .0561 gallons to milliliters?

    I tried .0561x1gal/3.785L x 1L/1000mL which would end up withyou multiplying .0561x1x1/3.785/1000, which doesn't equal 212.3616 milliliters.

    How can I solve this?



    Thanks

    \frac{.0561 gal}{1} \cdot \frac{3.78541178 l}{1 gal} \cdot \frac{1000 ml}{1 l} \approx 212.3616009 ml
