A cup is defined as being about 250 milliliters, or .25 liters, so 1.8 liters gives one just over seven cups, with an eighth-cup necessary to cover the remaining liquid. The word liter is derived from an older French unit, the litron, whose name came from Greek via Latin.

The original French metric system used the liter as a base unit, and it has been used in several subsequent versions of the metric system and is also accepted for use with the SI. The spelling of the word used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures is "litre” and this is also the usual one in most English-speaking countries, but in American English the spelling is "liter", being endorsed by the United States.

It is noted that one liter of water has a mass of almost exactly one kilogram, as a liter stands for a cubic decimetre. One liter is slightly more in volume than one U.S. Liquid quart and slightly less than one imperial quart or one U.S. Dry quart. A mnemonic for its volume relative to the imperial pint is "a liter of water is a pint and three quarters".

In the UK, petroleum is sold by the liter, and the costs have doubled from around 70 pence to £1.35 in the last decade; by contrast, in the United States, the gallon is used as a measurement. On bottles on milk in the UK sold in supermarkets, both the pint value and the liter value is given.
