    What would be the correct conversion from dollars per gallon to dollars per liter (and viceversa)?

    roughly 3.8 litres/gal. or .26 gal./litre. so, $4./g = 4 x .26 = $1.04/litre.

    Price here is about $0.78 per litre. So it would be = $2.97 per gallon?

    But bear in mind that your gallons are not like proper British gallons.

    One would hope not. You should show respect to your former colonial power.

    Completely.

    But you also have to pretend that British cars are not rubbish. Even Austin Allegros. And that MGs never broke down.

    I can only apologise on behalf of my entire nation. I am very sorry for the enormous amount of time you must have spent lying on your back with bits of rust falling into your mouth.

    Please, define your gallons however you like. You deserve our sympathy and our flexibility.

    My Conversion:
    US Gallon = much cheaper.

    I do indeed. ;)
    I regularly thank a benevolent GOD for the 'former' part.....although I do have a guilty lust for some British cars (Lotus) and aeroplanes (Who doesn't love Avros and Supermarines?)


    When did PR go metric?
    The last time I was there (admittedly some years ago) we bought our petrol in proper US gallons, and paid with proper US bucks.

    Here in Canada, we use the Imperial gallon rarely, except when calculating our mileage, because 60 MPG sounds better than "60 IMPG" which is the same as 50 USMPG.

    And "4.1 L/100 Km" doesn't have much of an emotional impact at all.
