It all depends on the vehicle and the size of the engine.

The fuel is what is left in the lines and filter as well as the dregs of the fuel tank. And just enough to move it if it runs.

Brake fluid maybe a liter for a standard car.

Transmission fluid for an automatic is just under 3 liters.

Engine oil, about 5 liters

Engine coolant, about 6-7 liters

This is aprox for a 4 cylinder endine.

Add more oil and cooland for a larger engine increase things by about 30% <that would be the numbers for my light pickup truck, minus the transmission fluid. it was standard and took 2 liters of gear oil.>

Other fluids:

Gear oil in the differentials and rear end on trucks, air conditioning gas is another issue.
