It shouldn't really matter what the units are called. You could record liters and call them gallons. Once you calibrate the first tank. your 320 mpg (really miles/liters) calibration would bring the next tank close to accurate for your units, since your next tank will be getting close to 320 mpg (indicated). That's why your UK Scangauge has no special Imperial gallon units to choose from. You just use gallons, and when you calibrate, your Imperial gallon size is corrected for.
