Answer:

#"4.72 gal"~~"17900 mL"# rounded to three significant figures

Explanation:

Start with the relationships between milliliters (mL), quarts (qt), and gallons (gal).

#"946 mL = 1 qt"#
#"1 gal = 4 qt"#

In order to convert gallons to milliliters, multiply the given number of gallons by #(4"qt")/(1"gal")#, then multiply by #("946 mL")/(1"qt")#.

#4.72cancel"gal"xx(4cancel"qt")/(1cancel"gal")xx(946"mL")/(1cancel"qt")~~"17900 mL"# rounded to three significant figures
