Unfortunately a US pint is only "about a pound". it's 1.04 pounds, which makes 3 gallons weight 24.96 pounds, so you should have added .23 to the weight instead of subtracting .73.

A spreadsheet would end my C&V life. If I knew how much I spend on old bikes i would probably stop. It's a hobby. It costs money. For similar reasons I also don't look at my bar tab. :)
