Enter the total mass of gasoline and the total volume the gasoline takes up into the calculator to determine the gasoline density.

Gasoline Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the gasoline density.

d = M/V
  • Where d is the gasoline density
  • M is the mass (lbs)
  • V is the volume (gallons)

To calculate the gasoline density, divide the gasoline mass by the gasoline volume.

Gasoline Density Definition

What is the density of gasoline?

Gasoline can vary between 715 and 780 kg/m^3 depending on the exact chemical proportions of the gasoline.


How to calculate gasoline density?

  1. First, start by filling up a certain volume.

    For this example, we will say we filled up a cylinder with a volume of 2 m^3.

  2. Next, measure the mass.

    Calculating the mass we find it to be 1550 kg.

  3. Finally, calculate the density.

    Using the formula above we find the density to be 775 kg/m^3.


What is gasoline?

Gasoline is a mixture of oil and gas that is used in combustion engines that are ignited to create a force.
