At the risk of being dense (sorry about the por pun) I'm not sure just what you mean by density of 0.9. How would this work out as Kg olives to Kg of oil?
If you mean 9kg of olives to 1kg of oil then that is a disaster.
Nothing to do with the yield. Density is mass divided by volume. You said that 1000 cc of olive oil would have a mass of 880 grams. That is a density of 0.88. I was saying, on the basis of most sources I could find, that 1000 cc of olive oil would have a mass of a little over 900 grams, typically around 910 grams.
