It`s at about $1.06 a litre here in Saskatchewan (Western Canada), 4.54 litres to a Canadian gallon = $4.81 in Canadian funds. A Canadian gallon is 20% larger than an American gallon, our dollar is in the range of $.87 US. So our gallon is 20% larger than US and our dollar is worth almost 20% less. It`s beginning to sound a little like we`re part of Mexico.
I thought a Canadian gallon was 3.78L?? I've been using 4.55L/gallon in my MPG calculations for a long time but I've recently been corrected. Gas is 95-96cents/L.....about an hour northeast of Toronto.

I was talkin' to Matt about it and he sent me a spreadsheet to help me keep track of my mileage. He got it from somebody on here but I can't remember who. Anyways it uses the 3.78 number in the formula. If I'd used the 4.55 number to figure out my mpg for my trip to London my mpg worked out to over 26mpg.
And really, what is the point of a Canadian gallon???? Why use something that is obsolete AND different from everybody else?
We`re Canadian, eh. What a bunch of politicans running this country, if you can`t confuse people you`re not doing your job.
How and why the metric system came to pass is something I`ll never know, some ways it`s easier but for the most part I still don`t like it.
Gas was $1.01.9 in Oshawa this evening. I was thinking about it this evening and I came up with a word to describe where things are at with the price of gas.....GLUTTONY...it's one of the "seven deadly sins".
First off yes there is a Canadian gallon, and yes if you get 20 mpg in the States you are getting 24 up here. I think we have a bigger gallon to offset all the hicks that drive jacked up trucks suckin back at 15 mpg. Secondly I am unsure how your truck is advertised at 15-19 mpg? If I am correct, isn't it rated around 25 (assuming the explorer)? Correct me if I am wrong.
All stickers on the vehicles go by the Canadian gallon. There is nothing worse than trying to figure out that L/100 km bull.
