When doing the calculations required in §§42.20-6(a), 42.20-7(a) and 42.20-8(a), the effect of free surface of the following liquids must be included:
(a) For each type of consumable liquid, the maximum free surface of at least one transverse pair of tanks or a single centerline tank must be included. The tank or combination of tanks must be that resulting in the greatest free surface effect.
