Request for a new unit of measurement for sig banner

Is it possible to get the option of displaying the units in (US) gallons / 100 miles along side the other measurements? It would be simple enough as data is right there: gallons per 100 miles = 100 / MPG

I like using gallons/100 miles better than MPG as it give me a clearer picture in my fuel consumption as the MPG scale isn't linear.

Going from 20 MPG to 25 MPG is only 5 MPG, but it is a gallon less consumed over 100 miles, 5.0 vs 4.0. Over 15,000 miles a year, it is a savings of 150 gallons a year.

Moving from 45 MPG to 50 MPG is still a 5 MPG difference but it is only a 0.22 gallon difference (only a savings of 33.333 gallons per 15,000 miles) per 100 miles, 2.22 vs 2.0. To drop a gallon of consumption like in the example above and go from from 2.22 gallons / 100 miles to 1.22 gallons / 100 miles, you need to reach 81.81818181 MPG.

We don't have any plans to do this right now, but we'll keep it in mind the next time we revisit signature banners.

how about gallons / 1000 miles instead?

If we are going to a new badge, let's not have to use decimal places.

I highly support for the addition of US gallons / 100 miles for fuelly badges. This site (and many others) has been lacking the US equivalent of L/100 km for a long time.

Also, L/100 km badges already have 1 decimal place.
