Okay PF, just to show you I have the right stuff:
£1.37/liter * 1.5973 $US/£ * 3.785 liter/galUS = 8.283 $US/galUS
The units on numerators and denominators cancel out except for the final units. All our answers are in the same ballpark depending on the variances in conversion factors.
No wonder all those EU types drive little cars. Driving in the US vs. driving in EU:
my car at $4.25/gal and 17 mpg: 4.25 $/gal * (1/17) gal/mile = $0.25/mile
EU car at 8.29 $/gal and twice the mpg: 8.29 $/gal * (1/34) gal/mile = $0.24/mile
So you can drive a bigger car in US at lower gasoline cost, or drive a small car in EU with double the MPG, and pay about the same cost per mile.
