Expert Answer:

 
Density of pure water = 1000 kg/m3
Density of sea water = 1022 kg/m3
 
Different oils have different densites.  
 
Example:
 
Density of coconut oil = 924 kg/m3
 
Density of olive oil = 800 - 920 kg/m3
 
Density of Glycerine = 1259 kg/m3
 
Density of crude oil = around 850 kg/m3
 
Most of the oils has density less than water. 
Viscosity of oil is always greater than water not density.
