Which country does math better, US or Germany?

My current rental car is a Chevy, and this is what I noticed.

My battery gauge is split into 8 equal segments, with the lowest being 8, the highest being 18.  How many volts is each segment worth?

My gas gauge has 8 equal segments, and my tank is 20 gallons, how many gallons is each 1/8th of the gauge worth?

At home:
My VW has a gas gauge split into 16 segments, and I have a 16 gallon tank.  How many gallons is each section worth?

My temperature gauge ranges from 120 to 320, split into 10 segments.  How much is each section worth?

I think Europeans pay attention more.
