I am quite disappointed that a sidetrack that I carefully labelled as Yet Another Germanic Grammar Thread was instantly hijacked by car nerds. I'd much rather learn more about verbal nouns. That said, in Denmark it used to be kilometers per litre until some sort of EU normalization directive was implemented. And I'm sure most Danes above a certain age still have to convert to km/l mentally to make sense of the new numbers. -- Lars
