Error on fuel-up

Using the new metric option, I get an error message about an unrealistic number of kilometers when fueling up.

My car is set to metric. In the "add a fuel-up" form, I entered the following values:

Kilometers since last fuel-up: 948.1
Litres: 38.06
Price/Litres: 1.419 (Euros)

Clicking the fuel-up button results in the following error message:

Error: Looks like the number of kilometers you entered is unrealistic for a single tank. You probably want to enable odometer tracking for this car.

My guess is that either the limit that triggers this error message is set a bit low or it's comparing the kilometer value I entered with a limit given in miles without first performing a conversion.

Yep, the limit was too low for kilometers. I just fixed it up, so you should be able to add your fuel-up now.

We put the limits in place because quite a few people were adding odometer readings as miles/kilometers instead of a trip reading.
