The specific gravity of diesel varies from .82 to .9 so it can weigh any where from 6.85lbs. to 7.5lbs/gallon.

a gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs


so, like said, if the specific gravity is .9, 8.34 * 0.9 = 7.5lbs

My Mark's handbook says diesel is 7 lb/gal. About the same as jet fuel.
Gasoline is 6 lb/gal.

It really depends on how far back you have to walk with the container.
