Abstract: We determine the rationality of very general quasi-smooth Fano $3$-fold weighted hypersurfaces completely and determine the stable rationality of them except for cubic $3$-folds. More precisely we prove that (i) very general Fano $3$-fold weighted hypersurfaces of index $1$ or $2$ are not stably rational except possibly for the cubic 3-folds, (ii) among the $27$ families of Fano 3-fold weighted hypersurfaces of index greater than $2$, very general members of $7$ specific families are not stably rational, and the remaining $20$ families consist of rational varieties.
