Ml to Oz conversion. When you describe amounts in milliliters, people in the US or even in the UK may not get a clear idea of what you mean. That means you have to process the ml to oz conversion or in other words – convert your sensible metric ml amount to the more complicated ounces in the English system. That should promote better understanding, whether you’re describing the amount of cleaner to be used or the amount of whiskey to be sold.
ML to OZ Converter
This page will help you do that. However, it’s not that simple. First you have to determine what kind of ounce you want to convert your amount to. Here on this page we are dealing with fluid ounces, which often use abbreviations such as “fl oz”, “fl. oz.”, or” “oz. fl.” on your text.
We are not talking about the ounce used for solids such as metal. This is strictly about the fluid ounce. However, you still need to determine the kind of fluid ounce you want to use.
ML to OZ – Unit Definition
Even though the fluid ounce is used for liquids, you still need to differentiate between the various versions and definitions.
- One definition is the United States customary fluid ounce.
- An ounce here is the equivalent of 29.5735295625 ml.
- It’s also 6 teaspoons.
- An ounce is the same as 2 tablespoons.
- It’s equal to 1/8 of a US cup.
- It is 1/16 of a US pint.
- It’s equal to 1/32 of a US quart.
- It’s 1/128 of a US gallon.
Then there is the United States food labeling fluid ounce. Since the customary fluid ounce converts to an unwieldy metric measurement, this has been changed to just 30 ml instead.
However, in the UK they use the Imperial fluid ounce. This is also known as the UK fluid ounce. You have to use this definition if the text is of UK origin. It may be written by a UK writer or it may be featured in a UK website or publication.
- It is equal to 28.4130625 milliliters.
- It’s the equivalent of 0.96 US customary fl oz.
- It is 1/20 of an imperial pint, or 0.05 imperial pints.
- It is 1/40 of an imperial quart, or 0.25 imperial quarts.
- It is 1/160 of an imperial gallon.
- A milliliter, however, is easier to understand. It uses the decimal system of tens.
- It’s 1/1000 of a liter.
- 10 ml is 1 centiliter.
- 100 ml is 1 deciliter.
- 1000 ml is 1 liter.

Convert ML to OZ
To make your conversion, first take your ml amount. Then divide it by the number of ml to an ounce. So if you have 300 ml of water, then do the following:
- If you want to convert to the US customary fluid ounce, divide 300 by 29.57. That gives you 10.15 ounces when you round it off to hundredths of an ounce.
- To get the ounce equivalent for a US food label, you can divide 300 by 30. That gives you an even 10 ounces. This method is used to make the numbers fit into the limited space of food labels.
- To get the UK or Imperial ounce, divide 300 by 28.41. That gives you 10.56 ml in UK fluid ounces.
Let’s say you don’t want to round off. That means you want the exact ratio.
