How much veggie oil in a box??

I can buy new veggie oil at Sam's in a 34# box. Has anyone actually measured one of these to see how many gallons (or quarts) are actually there? If not, I'll do it myself this weekend and post the results. But being kinda lazy, I thought I'd ask first.

Oh great. Numbers with decimal points. That means higher math skills. I hate higher math skills.

So, six of those puppies is 25.2 gallons. That puts me at not quite a quart over. I'll keep out a quart, and that'll cover it. Kewl!

Thanks Fab! I might actually pull this off this weekend. What a hoot!
