    Hey guys

    I drive a 2018 1.6L Civic here in Singapore and the HUD shows the petrol consumption as L/100km. I would rather it be km/l but i can't seem to find a way to change it.

    Anyone knows if this is possible?

    thanks in advance!

    Yeah I know. Just wondering if there was a way to do it. Wonder why some Honda cars have the other unit but this civic has this. It should just be a simple setting to change

    You would think that but nah.

    I would think that L/100km made the most sense tho. Thats what we use in Australia.

    Not possible,


    This is the universal standard display of the metric system.
    It's not hard to understand what your consumption is. You have to adapt
    Same in Canada for car only . Metric system is better and most important ; easiest ( kilometer, meter centimeter)
    I'm surprise to read in Australia is not like Great Britain wich use miles

    To convert;
    https://www.calculateme.com/gas-mileage/us-mpg-to-km-per-liter

    About
    Some countries measure fuel economy in Kilometers per Liter. The United States uses Miles per Gallon. This calculator will help you convert fuel economy between U.S. units and international ones.

    Note: This conversion will NOT work for the UK or Canada.

    My question ; wich country measure kilometers per litter ? I only see liter per 100kms ( L/100kms) never kilometers per liter.

    On North American models, you can toggle the display from mph / mpg to km/h / L per 100km with only a few button presses.

    Page 118 of the owner's manual -
    The change knob they're mentioning is actually the trip odo reset knob.
    And the fuel consumption also toggles between mpg and L/100km.

    On my recent trip to Canada I struggled with this as well, until I gave up trying to figure it out and searched online.

    Picture is in a 2018 Wrangler.
