Liters are the metric unit for liquid volume or more strictly dm3.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The litre (symbol L or l, the first is preferred) is not a true SI-unit; it is only an "accepted" unit of volume.

1 cubic metre (symbol m3, the SI unit) has 1 000 litres.
