7601.6000 TEMPERATURE CORRECTION FOR MEASURING LP GAS.

Subpart 1.

Requirements.

When liquefied petroleum gas is sold or delivered to a consumer as a liquid and by liquid measurement, the volume of liquid sold and delivered must be corrected to a temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit through the use of the volume correction table, shown in part 7601.9900, and calculated under subpart 2, or through use of an approved meter with a sealed automatic compensating mechanism. A sale ticket must show the delivered gallons, the temperature at the time of delivery, and the corrected gallonage, or must state that temperature correction was automatically made.

This part does not apply to unit sales or deliveries made directly to mobile fuel tanks with a capacity of less than 100 gallons.

Subp. 2.

Calculation.

To convert from measured volume at another temperature to net volume at 60 degrees Fahrenheit: measure the volume and temperature, determine the specific gravity at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, refer to the column in the volume conversion table, set forth in part 7601.9900, corresponding to the specific gravity, and read the volume conversion factor opposite the observed temperature. Multiply the observed volume by this factor to obtain the volume at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
