    Do you know how many gallons is in a barrel and how many in a drum?

    Cool picture of hard working soldiers.

    I guess I will edit.

    Drum=55 gallons.
    Barrel=42 gallons.

    You showed them, huh.
    You build them a place to stay and then they trash talk you.

    Many drums have a common nominal volume of 208 litres (55 US gal) and nominally measure just under 880 millimetres (35 in) tall with a diameter just under 610 millimetres (24 in) and differ by holding about 49 litres (13 US gal) more than a barrel of crude oil.
