231 cubic inches in a gallon

Pretend like there is no bow and get a volume for the rectangle. Then do some shady math and say that the bow is a half circle. Take 1.57*(lenght of the face)^2 to get the curved part. Add the two volumes, and convert to gallons. That should at least give you a decent upper bound.
