It depends slightly on things like type, temperature, and pressure, but petroleum oil has an approximate density of 0.88 kg/L

So there will be about 1136.36 liters per tonne

Would this calculation apply to vegetable oils such as crude palm oil, coconut oil etc.

Thanks for the help!

different type of oil have different viscosity and specific gravity ... so make sure your figure is correct

Assuming from what you quoted, you are still asking about oil, if we assume a density of 0.88 kg/L, then 66000 kg or 66 t.

However, the answer varies with density. Typical vegetable oils are around 0.92 kg/L, so 75000 L would be 69 t. Gasoline is much lighter than oil, around 0.73 kg/L so 75000 L of gasoline would be 54.8 t. Each of these products have lot specific densities that vary a little around the nominal, so use a measured density for the specific lot in question.

The answer would be different for feathers and lead. You have to identify the substance or give its density; otherwise, the question can't be answered.
