This question is directed to my friends across the pond...for the
last two days, I've been listening to a jazz radio station through
the Internet...102.2fm (

jazzfm launched in London in March 1990, and in Northwest England in
September 1994. The station has been committed to extending its
coverage area ever since; the London service has been broadcast
around the world via a live feed from the website since 1998, and the
station has now embraced the new technology of DAB digital radio.

It's fun. However, something caught my interest...they refer to
things in miles vs kilometers (traffic reports) and gallons instead
of liters (advertisements).

I was under the impression that you blokes used metric? What gives?
