The word ullage means “the amount of liquid by which a container falls short of being full” – a pretty handy word.
The word comes from Old French noun ouillage/eullage, which come from the verb ouiller/eullier (to fill a cask), with the root word ouil (eye, hole).
The word showed up in the mid-1400s
