Question for Aerospace owners...

Post by Aaron Shapiro » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:01 pm

So it appears to me that the Aerospace caseback lists the conversion between Liter and KG as 0.80 but shouldn’t it be 1:1?

In other words, the conversions on the back of the Aerospace are for jet fuel, not water. ;)
