The Alternator is not putting out enough voltage. If you recently replaced the alternator with a "new" remanufactured alternator that one could be bad to your truck somewhere to get it tested.

Why petrol engine light in weight?

If you mean versus a diesel, it is because the diesel parts need to stand up to higher cylinder pressures of a diesel engine. The engine needs to have thicker cylinder walls, deck, pistons, connecting rods, crank which all added up. Most big diesels still use cast iron block for the added strength, which can be 150+lbs heavier. for example: 12v 5.9L cummins: 975lbs 24v 5.9L cummins: 1,150lbs. Dodge 5.9L gas :650lbs
