In other words, the size of The Blood in a Human Body is 0.3 times 158 gills.
(for 70 kg body; average altitude; average)
The volume of blood in the average human body is about 40 gills. Persons living at high altitude, however, may have up to an additional 20 gills of blood to compensate for the lower oxygen level.
It's about one-fourth as big as a Car Gas Tank.
In other words, 158 gills is 0.247 times the size of a Car Gas Tank, and the size of a Car Gas Tank is 4.05 times that amount.
(for 2009 Ford Taurus)
A car gas tank (for example, that of a 2009 Ford Taurus) holds 640 gills of gas. In contrast, the Curved Dash Oldsmobile — the first mass-produced car — had a fuel capacity of just 169 gills.
