#7. What are gallons ? 194 out of the 197 countries in the world use the metric system, only Liberia, Myanmar and the USA use the old Imperial system. Is this site only for people in those countries ?

#11. That's not a truck, that's a ute. Trucks are Kenworth, Mack, White, Western Star.

#20. What are miles ?

Yes Cory, this site is only for Liberia, Myanmar, the USA and the U.K.. But only for U.K. folks if the picture relates to measurement. If not, it’s not for them. I have also corrected the spelling of your name to how it would be spelled like in those countries. Your welcome.

Derrick, UK uses both metric and imperial. Tends to be older folks thinking about miles, gallons, ounces and such. Be gone in 20/30 years.
