For what we pay in the US for fuel per gallon, those in the UK, British Isles, Scotland, Ireland, Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, etc. pay per liter (just about a quart) so if I am paying $3.00 a gallon here in SC some poor bloke in Mildenhall or London is paying 4X that amount ($12.00 or 6 quid/pounds per gallon).

God Bless the USA but marketing to US consumers leaves a lot to be desired. Believe it or not many Asian vehicles here are USA only and Japanese vehicles elsewhere are worldwide or JDM (Japanese domestic market) so I guess our vehicles could be ADM's/USDM's or USADM's!
