Gallons per Mile?

How about allowing a gallons per mile option for our data?

Those of us posting mileage in the states are used to using MPG, but a more efficient and better measurement is L/100K as used in most other countries. Since most of us are not (yet) metric literate, how about a hybrid between the two? G/100m? See this article for more info.

If you notice on everyone's data, there is in fact a L/100km figure there, even if you have units set to US.

We'd prefer to stick with standards used by most people rather than introduce new metrics that don't make much sense to people.
