Water weighs 8.33 lb/gallon. Lubricating oil would be about 0.85 times that, 7.08 lb/gallon, or 390 lb for a 55 gallon drum (plus the drum weight).

Engine coolant is part ethylene glycol, part water. I'm guessing around 1.05 time the weight of water, but it depends on mix. Says 8.75 lb/gallon.

About 120 lb. USDA says corn is 56 lb/bushel

20 gallons x 231 in³/gal x 1 bu/2150.42 in³ x 56 lb/bu = 120.3 lb

The USDA figure depends on the moisture content of the corn, but is "standard" for corn contracts.

To help, we need the density of that chemical, or at least the substance so we can try to look it up. All conversions between weight and volume are substance-specific and require the density.
