It's worth remembering that there are two different measurements of the fluid quart: the US fluid quart and the UK imperial quart. The US quart (946.35mL) is smaller than the UK quart (1136.52mL). So, an issue can arise if you are mixing up the different cup sizes. For example, the UK rarely (since the 1970s) references UK imperial cups in recipes and often adopts the metric cup, which is used in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the rest of the Commonwealth. The metric cup is smaller (250mL) than the imperial cup (284.131 mL). Using the conversion tool at the top of the page, you'll find the following conversions:

1 US fluid quart = 3.78541 metric cups 1 UK fluid quart = 4.546 metric cup
