# How many pounds is a gallon of diesel fuel?

## How many pounds is a gallon of diesel fuel?

seven pounds
Each gallon of diesel fuel sold in the U.S. weighs just under seven pounds.

## How much does 60 gallons of diesel weigh?

How much does 60 gallons of diesel weigh? At temperatures of 15°C or 59°F, 60 gallons of diesel would be equivalent to 438 lbs for a 1D diesel, 425.40 lbs for 2D, and 480 lbs for 4D but may slightly change under colder or warmer temperatures.

How much does 400l diesel weigh?

One hundred gallons = 700 lbs. The weight of diesel does vary somewhat. It weighs a little more than 7 lb. per gallon in Canada, as the gallon is larger, a little less than 7 lb.

### How much does 80 L of diesel weigh?

It depends on the density/specific gravity of the fuel. Diesel for automotive use is around 832kg/m3, or 0.832kg/litre, so there you go – 832g. It’s quite easy really – 1 m3 of water has a mass of 1000kg, or 1tonne per m3. One m3 of diesel has a mass of 832kg.

How much does a gallon of diesel fuel weigh?

Since diesel fuel density is equal to 53.11 lbs/ft³, which is equavalent to 7.1 lbs/gallon or 113.596 oz/gallon. Then, 1 gallon of diesel fuel weighs 7.1 pounds (lbs) or 113.596 ounces. See 53.11 lbs/ft³ in other units of density measurement.

#### How to calculate the pound of diesel oil?

Of Diesel Oil and Pound/gallon [US] you have to do the following: Then multiply the amount of Gallon [U.S.] Of Diesel Oil you want to convert to Pound/gallon [US], use the chart below to guide you. 1 gallon [U.S.] of diesel oil in pound/gallon [US] = 1222768.66547821 10 gallon [U.S.] of diesel oil in pound/gallon [US] = 12227686.65478213

#### How is the specific gravity of diesel determined?

The specific gravity of diesel fuels can range from a low of 0.81 to a high of 0.96 at 60°F (source). The specific gravity of a liquid can be multiplied by the density of water in pounds per gallon at 60°F, which is 8.328 pounds/US gallon, to determine the weight of that liquid in pounds per gallon (source).

How many gallons are in a pound of gasoline?

U.S. Gallons to pounds for different liquids Liquid (1 gallon) Density (g/ml) Weight (lb) Crude Oil 0.915 g/ml 7.636 pounds Diesel (fuel) 0.85 g/ml 7.094 pounds Gasoline (petrol) 0.737 g/ml 6.152 pounds Honey 1.42 g/ml 11.85 pounds
