# Re: One mans trash is this kids treasure

```This is an aside, but as it relates to calculating volumes in gallons vs
cubic inches, I will post it. I recently downloaded PC Magazine's new
calculator, which is very nice. It has the capability to convert between
units, including cubic inches to gallons, and cubits to whatever.

It was written up in a recent PC Magazine and you should be able to find it
on their site. Recommended.

Oh, it calculates the tank volume as 56.7272727272727273 US gals or 1815 US
gills (I thought that sounded fishy, thus making this an on topic post :o)
See, even I am subject to silly moments! In other words, a standard 55 gal,
as has been pointed out.
