Consensus on the internet is that an average adult male has about 5.6 litres of blood in their body (one litre is a large-size Coke bottle).

Hope it helps!

It all depends on how much you weigh. If you were 154 pounds per say you would have about 5.5 quarts of blood. So you can't just ask a dumb question and expect a good answer. (Even though this answers your question in way).

For a person weighing approximately 150 pounds, the blood volume is on average about 5 liters or 8.8 pints. If the person is larger or smaller, the blood volume would change accordingly. One liter of volume equals 1.76 pints.I hope this addresses your question.
