HOA3 & SO::L : ..... Money raised to dale fOr Vienna trip Liter pricing comes to Cloverdale If you're one of those to whom it has not already happened, be prepared for a startling experience. You'll be driving along when suddenly you will do an old movie type "double take" as you spot Caturegli's Shell Station sign proclaiming Full Service - 34.5. Unfortunately, says the Calif. State Automobile Association, this will not herald a return to the good old days, nor will it be a de'ja'vu phenomenon. That 34.5 price just means that the dealer is selling gasoline by the liter with a price that actually translates to a more realistic $1.36.6 a gallon. The California Department of Food and Agriculture's Division of Measurement Standard has decreed that after June 30, any gas station operator whose pump meters do not display the full price of gasoline sales will be subject to legal action by weights and measui'es officials. This simply means that as of July 1, 1980, "half pricing" will no longer be allowed. Since few pumps presently is use have the capability of showing current full gallon gasoline prices, many dealers and distributors are switching to the most logical alternative - liter pricing. In general terms, a liter is slightly more than a quarter of a gallon, specifically .2642 gallons or, con- versely, one gallon equals 3.7.78543 liters. This won't be as confusing as it ap- pears. CSAA says that to determine the cost of a gallon of gasoline when pumps are metered in liters, simply multiply the price per liter by 3.78543 and you have the exact gallon prices. (As in this example: .337 x 3.78543 equals 1.276). Many gas stations will continue to post gallon prices on the premises after liter pricing takes over. In order to find how many miles you are getting to the gallon, first divide the number of liters bought by 3.78543 to get the gallon equivalent. Then divide the gallons by the number of miles traveled since the last fill-up, and you'll have the miles per gallon figure, just as More.
