The code still correctly displays fuel consumption in liters, when metric mode is selected.

I took out the storing of microseconds/liter, because this unit is not used on the MPGuino Wiki page.

I did this because it would be confusing for people to list microseconds per US gallon, microsecond per liter, and microsecond per Imperial gallon. I decided that only one unit should ever be used, and since the MPGuino Wiki already uses only microseconds per US gallon, that is what I would also use.

I do not understand why this should even be a problem, since MPGuino can now calculate this figure directly from injector size and the number of injectors.
