The density of gasoline is 730 kg/m^3 at 0Â°C. Its average coefficient of volume expansion is 9.60x10^-4/CÂ°. If 1.00 gallon of gasoline occupies 0.00380 m^3, how many extra kilograms of gasoline would you get if you bought 11.0 gal of gasoline at 0Â°C rather than at 17.0Â°C from a pump that is not temperature compensated?
