UK setting incorrectly showing kilometers?

Since my last fuel-up i notice the addition of a 'UK' setting, but i have one small issue.

This setting is very welcomed, but surely this should display litres, miles and UK MPG, rather than litres, KM and UK MPG? kilometers aren't used in the UK and they don't work very well when you're talking about MPG rather than L/100km (which the metric setting already covers i believe?).

Nice to see new features add though .

So do vehicles track distance with miles or kilometers in the UK? I thought people use km for distance but UK MPG for comparing fuel economy. When giving directions would you say it's about 120 miles from London to Bristol, or would you say it's about 200 kilometers?

All of the UK tracks distance in miles and uses MPG for fuel economy. Ireland and the rest of Europe use kilometers and L/100KM.

ok, we'll get things moved over to miles when we can.

You should be seeing miles for the distance unit everywhere in the UK view now.
