I just changed the oil in my Toyota. The fitting on the plug takes a 3/16"

Damn my almost 20 year old Jeep uses mostly metric. You sure the fitting is 3/16ths and not some metric size?
4mm?
The metric and imperial sizes up to 10mm(3/8") are interchangable, above that there are noticible differences.

Australia changed to the metric monetary system in 1966 and the metric measuring system commenced being phased in about two years later. Does that mean we are a superior race.

But you also do everything upside down. ;-)
Actually no. It's the other way 'round. The eye being a simple lens sees everything updside down so where we are we do things the right way up but it's you people up "there" who are doing it all wrong.
