Answer:

Convert gallons to quarts and then to millilitres.

Explanation:

1. Convert gallons to quarts.

#6.08 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("gal"))) × "4 qt"/(1color(red)(cancel(color(black)(" gal")))) = "24.32 qt"#

2. Convert quarts to millilitres.

#24.32 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("qt"))) ×"946 mL"/(1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("qt")))) = "23 000 mL"# (3 significant figures)

The volume is #2.30 × 10^4 color(white)(l)"mL"#.
