So why do we (Canada) go kilometers per hour and not the metric equivalent of the hour?

The other part is easy; 100 km/hr is 60m/hr ……….the rest is irrelevant.

I just made it up for the thread.

I'm totlay confused as well.

I grew up with the miles/gallons way and that’s how I've always calculated it. I am thinking about changing my instrument panel to MPH for a while, so I can compare it to all our USA buddies mileage.

At this point in time, I am achieving about 9/100.
2485 k
2.2
5 gear

It would seem perplexing to call it mileage when you are traveling kilometers wouldn’t?
I have no idea what it should be called, but I call it kilometerage

Well took my car for its for its first road trip and my average "kiloage" was about 7.8 L/100km which is roughly 30 miles/gallon. Which I never realized how good that was till when I drove for about 600 km and I still had gas to spare when I got back home, and I did not baby it either with those numbers. I am definitely impressed with the kiloage in such a performance car.
