What is the difference in weight between gallon of water and gallon of gasoline?
A gallon of water and a gallon of gasoline have the same volume measure. A gallon, which is a measure of volume, is a gallon, is a gallon. But the gasoline is less dense than water, so it will weigh less. The weight of a gallon of water is about 8.34 pounds , while a gallon of gasoline weighs in the ball park of about 6.25 pounds, depending on the fuel. The gallon of water, which is the same volume as a gallon of gasoline, weighs a bit over 2 pounds more because the water is more dense.
