US/Imperial mpg figures

How about giving us the option of US or Imperial mpg figures? And indicating in the basic stats which is which. Save me multiplying by 1.2 Otherwise excellent.

We've held off on doing imperial gallons because fuel is no longer sold in those units (and hasn't been for some time, correct?). Our UK testers early on said that everyone has converted to L when filling up and 100km/L was the figure most often used around economy, just like the rest of the world, so we went with that.

Even though I'm in Canada (Eh!) and record information in Litres, I still convert to imperial gallons and show myself both mpg and km per litre. For us older folk who still go back and forth between metric and imperial, it would be nice to have that option.

"Our UK testers early on said that everyone has converted to L when filling up and 100km/L was the figure most often used around economy,"

I don't know who you spoke to, but they're living in a different UK to everyone else!

Yes, we fill up in litres and have done for a couple of decades. But we ALL still measure fuel economy in Imperial MPG. No one understands km/l here!

Sadly, the US MPG makes cars look alot less economic than they should be (my Aygo reads 10MPG less that it should!)

Can we PLEASE have an option to display economy in UK/Imperial MPG?

PRETTY PLEEEEEEEEASE?

Thanks!

In the mean time, if anyone else would like to convert US MPG to UK MPG, you can use this site ;-)

http://www.markporthouse.net/rangie/...conversion.htm

But it would be much nicer to have UK MPG on this site, it seems a shame to support different countries and currencies, but not the standard unit of measurement for fuel economy in that country :-(

We finally broke down and added imperial gallons to the display options. Here's more info: UK MPG Added.
