Fortunately for you, they still use good old MPH, Fahrenheit, and pounds and inches in the States. Canada went metric in the mid seventies and I will always prefer Imperial units of measure for most things, especially temp and speed. The Youngsters round hereonly know one measure now. Metric.

It took NASA the cost of a mars lander to figure out that maybe metric is the way to go.

My boss uses IP units and everytime he asks me something I respond in metric units

We had an Air Canada passenger plane go down for the same reason. Fortunately the pilot knew where a drag strip was in the middle of Manitoba.
See Gimli Glider.
I guess this is drifting OT.

of course you cant...because its not and nothing exists to show otherwise.
back in the day that stuff was all over but 65kg(from that bmw document) is the same as it is here.

so ya, a kg is a kg...mang

In Germany:
1 pound (lb.) = 0.454kg

1 kilogram (kg) = 2.205 lb.

Quote:
The United States and countries of the Commonwealth of Nations agreed upon common definitions for the pound and the yard. Since 1 July 1959, the international avoirdupois pound has been defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilogram.[8]

US gallon is different than UK gallon... kg are the same these days(and when that document was made)

they use the hybrid just like canada does for this conversion.
