Gasoline is 6 lbs. per gallon. Propane is 4.25 lbs. per gallon.

Hope this helps!!

Water is the heavest of the liquids at 6.45 lb per gallon, gasoline and oil is lighter than water since it floats on water. Diesel fuel is somewhere between 7.0 and 7.3 lbs/gal. A gallon of gasoline weighs about 6.1 lbs.
