The weight of a 55-gallon drum of oil depends on the density of the oil. With a density of 790 kilogrammes per cubic metre, a 55-gallon drum of crude oil would weigh approximately 188.98 kilos.
This is determined by converting cubic metres to gallons, multiplying the result by 55 gallons, and adding the oil drum’s weight, which is around 24.5 kg. The cubic metre to gallon conversion factor is 264.172 U.S. gallons.
Numerous variables, including brand, can influence the varying density of oils. In addition, both ambient pressure and temperature influence the density of a substance. At constant pressure, density tends to decrease with increasing temperature.
