Well, fans of classic engines measure displacement in cubic inches, but most
of us nowadays refer to ours in liters...which is also how we buy Coca-Cola
and other non-alcoholic beverages. Strangely, though, we still buy fuel for
our engines by the gallon.
The reason for this dichotomy would make an interesting research project for
a doctoral candidate somewhere, I should think. <g>
