Default Which liquid is heaviest?

Don't forget the weight of the liquids in your RV when figuring out how much you're carrying...So, which is heaviest? (The answer is in the next post...DON'T CHEAT!!) Hint: one is twice as heavy as the other.

Water is the heaviest at 8.3 pounds per gallon. The other liquids weigh: diesel (7.1 pounds per gallon), and propane (4.0 pounds per gallon).

Sweet wine is the heaviest...The specific gravity of wine is very close to that of water. It can be a little more or a little less depending upon the type of wine. Sweet wines tend to have a higher SG, so they weigh a bit more per gallon than water, which weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon.
