How much does one quart of oil weigh?

As well as hydrocarbon oils, there are also plant oils, so the

variation in densities is enormous.

If you are concerned about motor oil the density is about 888.1

g/l at 20C (room temperature). It is heavier at 0 C and lighter at

40 C but not by much. A quart is essentially the same as a litre.

888 g weighs a bit less than 2 lb.

Oil is not a uniform substance but a mixture of different

hydrocarbons. Their relative proportion differs from source to

source and, as a result, the density of oil varies by almost a

quarter. It is therefore not possible to give a sensible

answer.
