"...11 million gallons..."

"The ship was carrying soya beans and around 480,000 gallons (2.3 million litres) of fuel oil."


Would these be U.S.gallons or imperial gallons? I distinctly get the impression some cretin has converted all this from tonnes for dramatic effect.

I notice they didn't transmute "800 miles" to inches!

Just my rant on the standard of reportage these days...
