    I know that it is possible in the mobile app to set to flow rate to 0.25 gallons/pulse, but it appears that it just converts that to an equivalent liters/pulse value and uses that everywhere in the program (current flow rate, logs, etc). Is there any way to get it to track and display everything in gallons/minute for those of us in the U.S.?

    Because there is some issue with handling the unit conversion, my suggestion is to just look at the number and ignore the unit. In other words, when setting the flow rate, just set the number to what you need (0.25), and keep the unit the default (I think it’s liter by default, which is international standard). This way, when you see a flow volume of 10, that is in 10 gallons, and ignore whatever unit it’s displayed with.

    Any updates on this?

    When I enter in 0.75 gallons/pulse it converts it to 2.83 liters and displays that. No battery how many times I change it to 0.75 gallons it stays selected at 2.83 liters. The logs and current flow display liters.

    I can leave it in liters as it is accurate. I can enter .1988 gallons/pulse and it will then convert that to 0.75 l/pulse. This is incorrect, but I can just pretend all the logs say gallon instead of liter.

    However, it would be nice if the logs and the current display would display gallon correctly.

    +1. This is definitely needed. Perhaps a UI setting to toggle between the two units as display options.

    My suggestion is to ignore the unit: if you want to set 0.75 gallon / pulse, set it to 0.75 liters. Then the numbers should be correct and when it displays liter just think of it as gallon.
