How many gallons is a 48-24-24 tank?

Hi,
I just bought a 90 gallon AGA tank, but as I was cruzing around looking at other tanks.I see some tanks with the same measurements listed as 120 gallons? So, I looked up a couple of different volume calculators and ran the measurments and even allowing for a glass thickness of 1" (I estimated should i allow for thicker glass?) it still measures out from 107 to 117 gallons. Short of emptying it and refilling it a gallon at time - which I am not going to do . Which measurement should I go with? I was curious if any one else has run into this?

or to calculate it yourself length x width x depth (all in inches) divided by 231.
(48x24x24)/231=119.69

For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.
