The first post specifically mentioned a class of car sold around the world and only some Brits seemed puzzled by the type of engine they have.

Not driving habits, only reading comprehension when filling out owner information, or reading all of a post.

Chillax man, there are no rules about going off topic, it happens in every thread. People bring to the table whatever they know, or are interested in

Ha ha ha! Dude, you mention "cars similar to yours" - so what, british cars, 4x4s, same model year, diesels? If you want to call the topic police, you better get the off topic SWAT team in this forum, we are always wandering around crossing threads....!

As for amber in the UK it stands for both "go!" and stop - depending on whether it is by itself or with red.
Without wishing to go off topic, you mention we accelerate off the line over here - i don't, i try and set off smoothly to keep out of the "Power" zone.
I suspect many people do set off in far less economically minded manner though.

I guess some members have a very narrow interest range and always go back to the same topic. I apologize for trying to open fresh dialog.

Still do not know why Brits still do not know the type of engine they have.

I've always known what engine my vehicles had, but I'm a nerd like that. Some people are lucky if they know whether their car has a V6 or a 4 Cyl.

Maybe when they added thier vehicle to Fuelly, the 2.0 litre gas was the only option on the drop down menu, so they just used that so they could still keep track. Send them a PM and let them know

Who puts the engine choices in/on the website? Some cars seem to have half a dozen variations of the same engine. Some seem to have very few options. Seems like it's users adding them and not all users are created equal. Combine that with some people being so completely not car people and it's not too surprising some are wrong.

Re the OP's question, yeah, I do know the engine I have -- a 3.0L V6 diesel -- however, I don't know:
  • If the identical engine was sold in Audi Q5s that have a 3.0 V6 diesel in my region (Canada, or Canada/US), for all model years
    .
  • If the identical engine was sold in Audi Q5s that have a 3.0 V6 diesel across the globe, for all model years
I am aware that North Americans are offered far fewer engine variants than the manufacturer makes, and that North Americans tend to want bigger, thirstier engines. Relatively speaking, gasoline (petrol) is cheap in the US (more expensive in Canada).

Today's fuel prices are (per liter)...

Regular unleaded in Oakville, Ontario, Canada:
CAD$0.989 = US$0.76541 = GBP 0.575659

Diesel in Oakville, Ontario, Canada:
CAD$0.879 = US$0.76541 = GBP 0.575659

Regular unleaded in Jacksonville, Florida, USA:
CAD$0.73287 = US$0.5677 = GBP 0.42655

Diesel in Jacksonville, Florida, USA:
CAD$0.81825 = US$0.63375 = GBP 0.47620

Compare that with your local fuel prices in various parts of Europe, and you'll see why Americans don't typically buy fuel-efficient engines. Mind you, they cry at the pump when fuel prices go up and they're filling that big SUV they bought when fuel prices were low.
