How do American gas stations differ from Russian ones?
By the way, fuel in the USA is measured not in liters, but in gallons (1 US gallon = 3.8 liters). Those who are used to filling not a full tank, but a certain number of liters, at first have a hard time with this arithmetic – as well as with American miles. By the way, gasoline itself is called fuel, gasoline and even gas. Moreover, for all types of gasoline, there is one gun at the dispenser, and not different ones, as in Russia. Only for gas, the gun is separate, so it is impossible to confuse it with “gasoline”. The octane numbers of gasoline also need to be dealt with. American 87th gasoline corresponds to Russian 92nd, 89th to 95th, 92nd and 93rd to our 98th. At the same time, the quality of fuel will be equally high either at an ultra-modern gas station in downtown Los Angeles or at a simple station in the wilds of Idaho. So no need to try your best to reach the big city.
