An approximate weight is 8 pounds, based on the common adage: "A pint's a pound the      world around". So, since a gallon of liquid is 4 quarts or 8 pints, it's nearly 8 pounds. However water is a bit heavier, since water goes to the bottom, and diesel fuel, gasoline, kerosene stay on top.

Depends on the API gravity.  During the summer, diesel will weigh between 6.951 (API 38) and 7.076 (API 35) pounds per gallon.  Last winter, the diesel weighed around 7.206 (API 32) pounds per gallon.  

Regular unleaded gasoline weighs around 6.184 (API 59) pounds per gallon and premium usually has an API of 56, or 6.263 lbs per gallon.

The most commonly used weight for diesel is 7.3 lb per US gallon (0.9 kg / liter). However, the actual weight of diesel (or any other liquid) will vary slightly based on factors such as the exact chemical composition, temperature, gravity, etc.

You may use my online calculator to determine the weights of common liquids such as gasoline, diesel, propane, and water, by entering the number of liters or gallons. The calculator gives you results in pounds and kilograms.
