I know in some countries people use Liter/100 km (liter per 100 km). Some countries use km/Liter (km per liter).

My question is: which format Argentina people use?

L/100 km or km/L?

    How does this affect travellers? – gerrit Apr 27 '16 at 9:55
  • UK and USA use miles per gallon (and annoyingly use different gallons, so the numbers are different). Never heard of any place that does km / Liter. Apart from that, I recommend using a pocket calculator. – gnasher729 Apr 29 '16 at 22:17
  • In the Netherlands, and likely more European countries, km/l is what used to be used, now the standard is supposed to be L/100km (with the useless change of l into L on top of the different order) and nobody much uses it in daily life. – Willeke Apr 30 '16 at 10:06

According to auto magazines, L / 100 km seems to be the accepted standard. However km / L is sometimes used unofficially on forums and blogs. Either way converting from one to the other is simple.
