Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Miles per litre

Postby Brimington » Wed Jun 15, 2011 11:29 pm

They stopped selling petrol in the UK by imperial gallons around 20 years or so ago. We have since then had to buy petrol by the litre. The thing is, the speedometers in our cars are still calibrated in British miles. I know that no matter how I drive my car, I will get at least 300 miles per 50 litre tankful. But if I drive it really carefully, sometimes I can get more then 400 miles per tankful. Can we have a "miles per litre" / "litres per 100 miles" table on the fuel economy page.

Many thanks
Brimington

Thank you for the suggestion. It sounds quite reasonable. Added it to our to-do list.
