Are they really "lying" though, or being Economical with the truth or even just using the units which apply in Canada where, like the UK, both metric and imperial are used ?

It seems from the responses it is confusing, but is it being deceptive or just cleverly using the available units ? Checking ford.ca just now its giving me FE for the new Focus in l/100KM - the S Sedan does 7.8l/100km city. I did decline the option of entering my postcode though so maybe it changes if you do ?
