Heh, Bills never did get over the "lawn beez" incident, told him to use a neighbourhood kid to mow the grass.

American gallons are 3.9L
Speaking of not quite right, Canada is a whacky place... normally I wouldn't quote from wikipedia but this made me laugh-
|Canadians typically discuss the weather in degrees Celsius, purchase gasoline in litres, observe speed limits measured in kilometres per hour (km/h), and read road signs and maps measuring distances in kilometres. Cars have metric speedometers and odometers, although many speedometers include smaller figures in miles per hour (mph) for trips to the United States. Fuel efficiency for new vehicles is published by Natural Resources Canada in litres per 100 kilometres but window stickers in dealer showrooms include "miles per imperial gallon" conversions even though neither of these units has been used in fuel sales or road signs in three decades. The railways of Canada continue to measure their trackage in miles, and speed limits in mph. Canadian railcars show weight figures in both metric and imperial.|
Canadians typically measure their personal height in feet and inches and weight in pounds, although at a hospital or doctor's office their weight would most likely be recorded in kilograms. Newborns are measured in SI at hospitals, but the birth weight and length is usually announced to family and friends in imperial units. Although drivers' licences in some provinces like British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador use SI units, other provinces like Saskatchewan use imperial units. In addition, Fahrenheit is often used for cooking, as are U.S. cooking measurements, although some appliances in Canada are labelled with degrees Celsius or are convertible, and metric cooking measures are widely available. Stationery and photographic prints are also sold in sizes based on inches and the most popular paper sizes, letter and legal, are sized in imperial units. Canadian Football League games continue to be played on fields measured in yards; golfers also expect courses to be measured in yards.
