I often laugh at mpg figures !! Especially from CL & Ebay.

After all we all know our cars run on the smell of an oily rag!!

Maybe some are quoting figures for imperial gallons instead of US gallons !! I guess sellers use imperial gallons, buyers use US gallons.

Over here we use liters and Km. I just convert back to the units I grew up with.
