Seems like 1% for every 8 degrees Celsius.
At least there's some compensation for winter gas being less dense.

Looking up the prices at https://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/ $2.50 seems average in most states.
Let's say with ten gallon at $2.50 a gallon then a hot summer afternoon or chilly morning at 16 degrees less could make a 50 cent difference for the same fuel.
Or get you 0.2 gallon extra for free; that's 12 whole miles at 60 mpg...

When it is cold and you don't plan on driving much after fillup, don't brim it to the neck; it might spill when it expands.

Here in the Netherlands gas goes for 1.66 a liter, that would be about $7.50 a gallon... But most of our filling stations have underground gas tanks and therefore hardly any temperature variation.
Visited the links you're shared and got some useful analytics. Finally, I got it will be more inconvenient in terms of time and schedule.
Thanks for brief sharing.
