Yep, the miles are the same, thank god. Imagine what problems those British track legends (Sebastian Coe, Steve Ovett) would've had trying to adjust their pace and times just because they were competing across the pond . . . It's gallons that differ. The U.S. gallon is ca. 3.785 litres; the Imperial (British, Canadian, Australian, N.Z. etc) gallon is ca. 4.546 litres. Now if the U.S. could go metric for once and for all this would solve a lot of problems. Except the possible loss of face what with people having to buy 38 litre hats in Texas. Not quite the same feeling . . . // Robert David wrote: > John > > Exchange rates vary, with a couple of tho involved you need to check at > the time of purchase.
