Use Currency/Exchange Rates within the Measurement Converter! 

Introduction: You can now use world currencies/exchange rates within the measurement conversion calculator!  World currencies can be combined with any other measurement units.  For example, you can convert 1.5 fluid ounces per United States dollar to milliliters per European Union euro or 1.6 United States dollars per gallon to British pounds per liter.  This is useful for comparing current economic data from different countries.

Entering Currencies: World currencies can be entered using any of the following:

  • ISO 3-letter currency code:
    USD for United States dollars, EUR for European Union euro, etc.  See the Currency List for a complete list of currencies and their associated Codes.  Note: Currency codes should usually be entered in all capital letters, since some of the codes have alternate meanings when entered in small letters.  You can enter currency codes in small letters, but if the conversion result does not include the currency, try entering the currency code in all capital letters.
  • Full name of country and currency:
    United States dollar, European Union euro, etc.
  • Issuing country or entity name:
    United States, European Union, etc.

Rates Current As Of: The exchange rates used by the measurement conversion calculator are the same rates as those used by our currency conversion pages.  Rates are updated weekdays (Monday through Friday) at around 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time (5:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. GMT, depending upon whether Standard or Daylight Savings Time is currently in effect in the United States).  The result of the measurement conversion will show when each of the exchange rates was last updated.

Performing Comparisons: You can use fractions to perform some kinds of comparisons.  For example, if gasoline costs 25 US dollars for 17 gallons, then what is the cost in British pounds sterling per liter?  Answer: Convert 25/17 USD/gallon to GBP/liter.
