That can't be correct, unless you added like 40 pounds of sugar, instead of 4!
Apple juice alone tends to be around 1.050ish, and sugar gives 46 points per pound. Adding a gallon of water would dilute it a touch. I'm guessing that the actual OG if you had 4 gallons of cider, 1 gallon of water, 4 pounds of white sugar and .5 pound of brown sugar would be more like 1.075ish.
Your reading is flawed.
I'd definitely uncap those bottles, because there is something really wrong and you're looking at bottle bombs if you did bottle at 1.020.
