A little obscure way but it always helped me (save your case/data before you attempt it): [1] Goto Adapt->Iso-value. Put min-max values and get the cells marked out of it. (make sure you use "0.9999999" rather than just "0.99"), [2] Goto Grid->Separate Cells. Pick your register (of just marked cells) and the fluid zone(select all if you are confused). Click on Report to see what it is going to do. If you are happy with that, do "Separate". It should create a separate fluid zone, [3] Goto Report->Volume integrals and find the volume of just separated fluid zone.

Of course, you have to throw away your case file once you do this calculation.

Not an easy way but it works fairly ok..
