I recently saw and Canadian write up on the 2000 Outback. It listed the following spec for the fuel consumption :

Fuel consumption :
City: 10.9 l/100 km (26 mpg)
Hwy: 7.4 l/100 km (38 mpg)

What's the difference between Canadian and US models that allow for such high mileage?

A Canadian (Imperial) gallon is five quarts, not four like a US gallon.

Instant 20% increase in mileage, eh?

Sorry... my engineering side coming through.

The Imperial gallon is not 5 quarts... it is 4 quarts (Imperial), same as the US gallon in that sense. But, both units are a different size from each other.

Just check any conversion chart. 1 Imperial gallon is "close" to 5 US quarts, granted. (4.8)

1 Imperial gallon = 4.55 liters
1 US gallon = 3.78 liters

The Imperial gallon is 20% bigger.

I really wish the conversion to metric hadn't gotten derailed in North America... :-\

Blame the building industry...

Hey Bubba, lets get these 5x10's nailed up for the wall frame, then cover it with 122x245 sheetrock. Oh yea, grab some M6x40 drywall screws while yer at it!!

No one wants to build 2.45 meter high ceilings either.
