Does anyone know how the Distance Impulse Numbers are calculated? For the record, I know my speedo reads high, but I'm not sure of the odometer's accuracy because believe it or not mile markers on the motorways in the UK are in kilometers! Luckily I can easily change my cluster in the MFD to km to do a quick test one of these days.

número K
Explanation:
"The distance impulse number ('K number') is a constant used by the instrument cluster to calculate speed and distance travelled.

Note: The distance impulse number (K number) is preset from the manufacturer and cannot be changed."

"... o número k é chamado de constante de proporcionalidade da proporção múltipla."

Pelo que entendi, o número K é uma constante utilizada no cálculo da velocidade e do percurso. Na falta de um termo específico, eu usaria "número K" mesmo, possivelmente com uma nota explicativa (entre parênteses ou de rodapé).
