@ poster -
It really comes down to measuring system orientation and origin, I'll explain -
The US uses what is called the imperial units for measuring, while the rest of the world uses, or like Britain, has converted to using the metric system.
Quite simply, Americans measure in feet, inches, miles, acres, ounces, quarts, pints or gallons etc, while the rest of the world measures in metres, centimetres, kilometres, hectares, litres, millilitres etc.
Therefore, cars originating from the US will invariably be mileage based (as will people who have lived there for a while), and those from Europe or Asia will be kilometres.
Hope this helps?

thanks for the info, so in that wise it means if a car has like 170 kilometer and when converted to mileage it will be reduced in figure to about 100 mileage . cos i tried to convert kilometer to mileage and it shows the higher the kilometer the lower the mileage u get when converted. its confuses alot of pple like me when pple ask for the mileage of a car and the car is from other part of the world which had kilometer and when they see the kilometer they think its too high but when convert to mileage its reduced . well i think i get the idea now.
