The density of a substance is usually given in grams per millilitre. The normal density range of mineral oil is 0.86 grams per millilitre to 0.98 grams per millilitre.

The volume of mineral oil increases along with the temperature. An increase in volume means the density of mineral oil decreases. The amount of expansion can be calculated using the coefficient of thermal expansion for mineral oil.
