    Im coming up with .2549 gallon. The formula is Pi x radius squared time the height (length). Used a program to convert from Cubic Inches to gallons).

    1 quart huh?? in 300' of hose? If indeed your formula is correct you need to use consistent values i.e. inches not feet and inches.

    I used your formula and came up with 3.055 gallons.

    I would GUESS it's closer to 2.549 gallons, I think you got your decimal point in the wrong place.

    But then again I'm just guessing.

    That formula was correct and my figure was correct.

    I just realized how rude my first posts read...didn't mean anything by it! Sorry!

    Correct. 3600" not 300'. The answer is 3.06 gallons

    Thanks for the help, 3 gallons sound about right.

    All I know, is it's HEAVY! You take approx. 24 pounds, and have it dragging on the ground in a loop, and it's for the birds. Never again, man.
