At 4 deg Centigrade the density of water is exactly 1kg per liter.

Petrol is less.

To convert mass (kilograms) to volume (litres), you need to know the density of the substance (water, petrol) you're converting.  Density is mass divided by volume (g/cm^3, kg/m^3, etc)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Density

Water's an easy example, because it has a density of 1 g/cm^3, or 1000 kg/m^3 (more or less).

Using Google, we can find that 1 litre = .001 cubic metres.
http://www.google.com/search?q=1+litre+in+cubic+metres&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&ie=utf8&oe=utf8

So now we can do the conversion:
.001 m^3 of water * 1000kg/m^3 = 1kg of water
