Talk:Units of transportation measurement

I hope this standard never catches on, people utilize personal transportation because its personal, and therefore easily customizable. It is very difficult to get people to carpool, even giving them a special, uncongested lane in rushhour doesn't work, although it is quite convenient for those wishing to make dates or family trips when the freeways are full of commuters! If this standard does catch on, it will result in making intelligent choices more difficult for consumers, and the guy with the Hummer H2 will actually be able to claim that he gets better mileage than many motorcycles - gag.

This is a measure of quantity. Its scope does not include quality, sorry. Soredewa 07:40, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Merger proposal with kilometerton[edit]

The proposal is fairly self explainatory. I might do it myself, except I thought the sources may be useful and I don't speak German Nil Einne (talk) 11:45, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree: it's exactly why this here article exists in the first place. --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 02:21, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
the spelling kilometerton is not very English-like: (quite German-American!)

The reason for use of french spelling tonne is to distinguish it from short ton. Google matches in lr=lang_en

kilometerton: 43 kilometreton: 0 kilometre-ton: 244 kilometer-ton: 1,040 kilometer-tonne: 29 kilometre-tonne: 202 tonne-kilometre: 10,100 tonne-kilometer: 2,480 ton-kilometre: 3,040 ton-kilometer: 12,500

I do not know which of the above are acceptable in English texts, sorry. --Soredewa (talk) 11:39, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
