My BET is on about the same capacity as the A380 (310000 liters).
Exceptions confirm the rule.

661,375 lb (300,000 kg) with a load range of 2,430 nm (4,500 km) and an unload range of 8,310 nm (15,400 km).

The loaded Antonov sure burns a lot of fuel 300000kg for only 45000km. Maybe a new engines would extend this range for at least 2000km?

Hell, no ! There's not anywhere near 300,000 kg of fuel in it when it's fully loaded (with 250 tons of payload) ! In that case, the TOW would approach 800 tons !

There's only 300,000 kg of fuel in it when it has no payload, and in this case, the range is 15400 km, as RichardPrice noted.

With nearly all planes, you can't have a full payload plus full tanks, otherwise you're over the taxi and takeoff weights.

1 US gallon of Jet A at a specific gravity of .88 (it varies between .63 and .88) weighs in at 3.32KG.

So the AN-225 can carry 90,361 US gallons.

This is far from scientific as it depends on the time of day the aircraft is fuelled, how long the fuel has been sat around for at a certain temperature etc.
