Imperial Gallon or 5 Quart Can

Perhaps you have heard the term imperial gallon and wondered what that meant?  An imperial gallon refers to a liquid unit of measurement commonly used in the UK, Ireland and less commonly Canada.  An imperial gallon is defined as 4.54609 litres in the British imperial system of measurements.    The US liquid gallon is defined as 3.785411784 litres.   Therefore, one imperial gallon is equivalent to approximately 1.2 US liquid gallons.  Yankee Containers carries one friction top, or paint can, that is an imperial gallon.  If you are looking for a can that is slightly larger (approximately 5 quarts) than a standard US gallon then this can may fit your needs.
