See the attached picture. It is an Aero Products Research E6B Model 4. Notice the liters marks under imp. gal. and u.s. gal. How can I use the liters marks? Can I convert quantities to and from liters?

enter image description here

I reviewed the instructions manual. It is for a variety of E6B models and does not cover this small detail of having liters under imp. gal. or u.s. gal..

I may be wrong as I have a different model of E6B, which does conversions differently from yours, but based on this larger picture

enter image description here

It looks like you line up the black marker (on the "10" on the inner scale) with the conversion you want to do (eg "U.S. gal / liters"), and read US Gals on the outer scale and Liters on the inner. A good check is that 10 US Gallons should be about 37.9 litres.
