Indeed it is.Baja Turbo said:I thought the Forrester was built off the Impreza Platform,is this true?
I totally agree, the Forester just was not an option for me due to the very utilitarian looks. The Outback looks way better IMHOLosiho said:
I chose the Outback mainly because it is bigger and better finished (imo) inside, and MUCH better looking all round. The Forester (both generations) is just too ugly and slab-sided, and looks too narrow from either the front or rear.
And this is just my humble opinion, I don't want to offend Forester owners
Wrong conversion ! 1 Imperial Gallon = 4.5 litres. 1 US Gallon = 3.8 litres.ottiehund said:We use litres and km over here but mpg still means more tome so I maintain myrecords that way - FYI, I use 4.54609 and 1.609344 as conversions from litres to gallons and km to miles.
Losiho: Thank you for pointing this out! ottiehund's mpg numbers just seemed unrealistically high for US mpg. His numbers make more sense now. Just need to change the formula in his spreadsheet.Losiho said:Wrong conversion ! 1 Imperial Gallon = 4.5 litres. 1 US Gallon = 3.8 litres.
Having grown up in Switzerland and France, I don't understand why anybody uses anything other than the metric system! Even after 10 years in the US, I still have trouble with Fahrenheit, pounds, feet and inches, not to mention silly ounces. Don't even get me started on cups and table spoons....ottiehund said:Actually, the conversion is correct for where I live as we always used the ORIGINAL imperial system - why the US ever changed it I never understood....
