I need to convert mils of thickness, like 2.5 mils to gallons of material used. An example is say I want to spray a board with finish that is 2.5mils thick. The board is 48" x 96" in size. How many gallons of material did I use? Thanks for your help.

For the initial thickness, area times thickness is volume, and 231 in³ is a gallon. For your board 48" x 96" x 0.0025" = 11.52 in³ = 0.05 gallons roughly.
As to final thickness, I don't know.
