Density at 15 °C = 840 kg/m³
Values calculated as per API Standard 2540 (1980), Chapter 11.1

To obtain the net volume of liquid at 15 °C, multiply the uncompensated meter reading by the volume correction factor (VCF) which corresponds to the average measured temperature of the liquid during the delivery.
