  1. I would convert 15.0 gal to liters. There are 3.785 L in 1 gallon.Convert liters to mL. There are 1000 mL in 1 L.
    Then mass in grams gasoline = volume in mL x density in grams/mL.

    Now convert grams to pounds knowing there are 453.6 grams in 1 pound.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
