the stupid part is..... we canadians don't even use gallons. Not Imperial gallons, not US gallons. We use litres.

And at that, if you do buy a gallon of something (ie, washer fluid), it's sold by the US gallon.

I really, REALLY hate they use imperial MPG to advertise car fuel economy up here. It's extremely misleading.

...... the kicker is, if we Canucks switch our gauge display to "Miles/Gallons" on our cars, it's based on US MPG, not imperial... I prefer US figures anyway.
