In Canada we see the same thing with mileage. An American gallon is 3.78 liters while the Canadian/european gallon is 4.54. A difference of 20 percent. So our published and actual mileage ratings are naturally 20 per cent higher but obviously still really the same mileage on similarly equipped cars. The strange thing I noticed with the trip computer is that while you can change the display readouts to miles per gallon instead of liters per 100 kilometer, they use the american gallon size only, at least here in Canada. I would imagine it would be different outside of North America since the car is designed in Germany. I think I will google to see if The Imperial gallon is used in Germany. So little time, so much trivial information to look up.
