Reasoning

I followed this chain of reasoning:

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

US gallon is a unit of capacity ([fact: ["123914845@trueknowledge.com"]])

US gallon is a unit of capacity ([fact: ["123914845@trueknowledge.com"]])

unit of capacity
is a unit class corresponding to
volume
([fact: ["123924888@trueknowledge.com"]])

By calculation (generator: ["parametered_object_corresponding_to@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1 US gallon is the parametered object corresponding to volume and 1 and US gallon

1 US gallon is the parametered object corresponding to volume and 1 and US gallon

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

US customary pint is the optimum conversion unit for US gallon ([fact: ["644332440@trueknowledge.com"]])

US customary pint is the optimum conversion unit for US gallon ([fact: ["644332440@trueknowledge.com"]])

By calculation (generator: ["second_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

US gallon is the second parameter of 1 US gallon

US gallon is the second parameter of 1 US gallon

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

Fact 1: 8 is the multiplier that converts US gallon and US customary pint ([fact: ["644333176@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1: 8 is the multiplier that converts US gallon and US customary pint ([fact: ["644333176@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1
is true for
October 26th 2009, 15:39:34 onwards
([fact: ["644333188@trueknowledge.com"]])

By calculation (generator: ["timeperiodtopoint@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 1 is true at July 25th 2014, 22:22:26

Fact 1 is true at July 25th 2014, 22:22:26

By calculation (generator: ["now@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

The current time is July 25th 2014, 22:22:26

The current time is July 25th 2014, 22:22:26

By calculation (generator: ["first_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

1 is the first parameter of 1 US gallon

1 is the first parameter of 1 US gallon

By calculation (generator: ["product@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

8 is the product of 8 and 1

8 is the product of 8 and 1

By calculation (generator: ["class_parametered_object@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

volume is the class of the parametered object 1 US gallon

volume is the class of the parametered object 1 US gallon

By calculation (generator: ["parametered_object_corresponding_to@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

8 US customary pints is the parametered object corresponding to volume and 8 and US customary pint

8 US customary pints is the parametered object corresponding to volume and 8 and US customary pint

By calculation (generator: ["equivalent_to6@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 2: 8 US customary pints is equivalent to 1 US gallon

Fact 2: 8 US customary pints is equivalent to 1 US gallon

Fact 2
is true at
July 25th 2014, 22:22:26

Fact 2:
US customary pint
is the unit used in
8 US customary pints

I used the following facts to provide this answer:

US gallon is an unit of capacity

unit of capacity is a unit class corresponding to volume

US customary pint is the optimum conversion unit for US gallon

8 has been the multiplier that converts US gallon and US customary pint since at least October 26th 2009, 15:39:34
