how many gallons are 35 pounds of peanut oil?

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.

Peanut oil has a specific gravity of 0.92 at 60º F (Source:, so peanut oil weighs 7.68 pounds a gallon at 60º F.

35 pounds / 7.68 pounds/gallon = 4.56 gallons.
