I assume all cars in the US have both, but I have been driving only BMWs since 2007, so can't confirm, but I am sure many forum members can.

Converted countries don't need anything other than metric. I wonder what does it look like in the UK.

Royale with cheese anyone?
there's also a difference between certain Imperial units and US units of measure, mostly volume related.
