"What is the density of fuel oil?"
Yes, it does
There are 42 gallons (1 U.S. gallon = 3.78 liters) in a barrel (i.e., 1 barrel of oil = 159 liters). When converting to oil to Metric Tonnes (MT), there is around 7.3 BBL per MT, and 304 Gallons per MT. Originally there were 40 gallons to a barrel. However, that was changed in the mid-19th century to give a little extra so consumers wouldn't feel "cheated." According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 1 "BBL" of crude oil makes about 17 gallons of gasoline, 12 gallons of gasoil, 7 gallons of jet fuel or kerosene, while lubricants, light naphtha and asphalt makes up the rest. This ratio depends on the crude type and varies a lot. The easy way to remember the number of gallons in a barrel of oil: There are 7 letters in gallons and 6 letters in barrel. 7X6=42 gallons. 42 US gallons. ALL OIL PRODUCTS ARE +/- 5 PERCENT, ALSO THE BARREL!!
A barrel of oil is 42 gallons ~ 0.045 bbl = 1.89 gallons A barrel of water is 31.5 gallons ~ 0.045 bbl = 1.42 gallons
