- Mileage as unit-agnostic term 2 answers
I'm developing a software application in which users must enter odometer values of their cars. I'm looking for the correct term for the variable/database field that stores an odometer reading.
Terms I'm not really satisfied with:
- mileage: Too imperial, since I'm actually storing kilometers and not miles. And this term is a bit ambiguous because it's also used for fuel efficiency.
- distance: Too generic.
- odometerValue: Too literal.
I'm looking for the metric (or unit independent) equivalent of the term mileage, or is this term also used in metric countries?
