Cubical coefficient of expansion at 15°C = 0.001072 per °C

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.

Densities are mass (in vacuum) and are taken from: Thermodynamic Properties of Ethanol at Atmospheric Temperature, by T.S. Khasanshin and A.A. Aleksandrov, Journal of Engineering Physics, Vol. 47, No. 3, 1984.
