You suckers probably thought it was 33.47. Not even close, goober! It's 33.469999. How do I know? Because the 2009 Honda Fit and its built-in calculator told me so.

Our resident nerds can't explain this, so if you've got an in at a calculator factory, please, give me the low-down, but what I do know is this: I don't want this computer in charge of giving me my change at the supermarket. (What would I do with $0.000001?)

All that over complication of simple subtraction aside, this is a pretty neat feature that has some extra goodies like automotive measurement calculators and some other handy features if you're stuck in a remote area of Vermont and all of the signs are in metric and need to know how many more kilometers your car will go on a liter of petrol.
