Do argon have a large energy density? And what level is it on? Is it weak or have a density like gasoline. How much energy can argon store and what noble gas have the highest energy density?

In terms of chemical reactions, Argon is not useful a fuel, as it doesn't react easily with any other elements - that's why it's called a noble gas. Compounds with Argon are very rarely seen.

Gasoline is a mixture of compounds of carbon and hydrogen. These react easily with other chemicals, particularly oxygen, and these reactions allow it to be used as a fuel.

So Argon is useless as a conventional chemical fuel because it hardly reacts with any elements.
