Cubical coefficient of expansion at 15°C = 0.001180 / °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: Methanol Thermodynamic Properties from 176 to 673 K at pressures to 700 Bar, by R.D. Goodwin, Journal of Physics Chemistry Ref. Data, Vol. 16, No.4, 1987.
