### Full Answer

A U.S. gallon is used in the U.S., some Latin American countries and some areas of the Caribbean. The Imperial gallon is used in the U.K., Canada and some areas of the Caribbean. As diesel gets colder, the density increases, and the energy that a gallon contains and the potential miles per gallon the fuel can achieve increases with it. Alternatively, as the temperature rises, the density and potential miles per gallon decreases.
