Answer depends on what the liquid is and what sort of gallon you mean (US or imperial).

Assuming the liquid is water, in the metric system 1 litre of water has a mass of 1 kg - nice and easy! But for US gallons to pounds the conversion would be:

1 US gallon = 3.785 litres = 3.785kg = 3.785 x 2.205 lbs/kg = 8.346 lbs

And for imperial gallons to pounds:

1 Imperial gallon = 4.546 litres = 4.546 kg = 4.546 x 2.205 lbs/kg = 10.024 lbs

5 gallons of what? Water? Water weighs approximately 8.34 lbs. per gallon, which for 5 gallons = 41.71 lbs.

The substance or density should be noted when converting volume to mass and vice versa.
