Canadians shouldn't be so quick to talk. Sure, you guys use liters and kilometers, but you still use plenty of feet, inches and pounds. My putative mother-in-law still knows F better than C.
Old habits die hard, therefore may people use the old units that are illegal for many years. And many people, including young ones, use C for air temperature and F for water temperature.

BTW, that's another funny Canadian thing. They pour beer in British (20 oz) pints.
If we're lucky. Many new glasses are half liter now. Another funny fact is that our beer bottles hold 12 imperial fluid ounces - 341 ml, but we use American cans that hold 12 US fluid ounces - 355 ml.

Our 2001 diesel scudo van even managed 5l/100km 47 mpg(US) 56mpg(UK) over 1000km mostly autoroute with a full 750kg payload and consumes only a little more for conventional day-to-day use more lightly loaded.
Yes, diesel engines from that era were very economical. Won't happen now due to current ecology requirements.
