purity and temperature

I bought a hydrometer/alcoholmeter to check the purity of my methanol. Got it from Brewhaus.com and the scale is 0-100% at 60F. How do I adjust it for 80F? or other temps. I have seen the tables for specific gravity but that doesn't help me.

I think you may have more accuracy if you put the methanol in the fridge, or give the container a ice water bath, until it gets to 60. I don't notice much difference between 60 and 70 with mine. I've never tested any higher than that, but I do know it throws the numbers off. My hygrometer is on the cheap side, so it may not be showing much of a difference related to temps.
