Most oils are around 7 lbs/gallon (water is 8.3) so around 5 gallons.

If you can find a precise density for peanut oil, you could improve the accuracy a little, but I'm sure it would be between 4.5-5.5, so 1 digit accuracy.

Barb:

Peanut oil has a specific gravity of 0.92 at 60º F (Source: http://www.csgnetwork.com/sgvisc.html), so peanut oil weighs 7.68 pounds a gallon at 60º F.

35 pounds / 7.68 pounds/gallon = 4.56 gallons.

The label on a 35 pound "Catania 100% Peanut oil" container shows 17.5 liters, which translates to 4.62301091 gallons
