If it is a cylinder with an ID of 6 ft.

V= 2 pi R^2 L=6.28*3^2*27=1,526.814 cu ft.=1421.4 Gal

You failed to define the wall thickness of the pipe or if the 6 ft diameter is inside or outside diameter. Pipes of a nominal 6 ft size can be either

Volume = cross-sectional Area times Length

V = (𝞹r²) * L

V = 𝞹(3²) * 27 ft³ = 763.4ft³

or since 1 gallon = 231in³, then 5711 gallons

Somewhere between quite a bit and sh*t ton.

Actually 3 x 3 x pi x 27

763.4 cubic feet
