It cannot be done.

A kilogram is a measure of mass. A litre is a measure of volume. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid.

The masses of equal volumes of the two substances will clearly be very different. So there is no direct conversion between mass and volume: you need to know the density of the substance to enable you to carry out the conversion. Different kinds of oil have very different densities.

To convert lubricant oils from kilograms (Kgs) to liters, you need to know the specific gravity or density of the oil. Once you have this information, you can use the formula: Volume (liters) = Mass (kg) / Density (kg/l). Multiply the mass in kilograms by the reciprocal of the density in kg/l to get the volume in liters.

1 kg = 1 x 1.114 means 1 kg = 1.114 Ltr
