A "liter" is the same in the U.S. as it is in the U.K., it is an internationally standardized volume.
So if the medicine lists directions in liters just use that.
But if you have to use gallons... The U.K. gallon is slightly larger than the U.S. gallon.
To convert U.K. gallons to U.S. gallons, multiply by 1.2 To convert U.S. gallons to U.K. gallons, divide by 1.2
