Actually I didn't see the code. From what I read they implemented a
full importer for MKVI and it carries all the data.

Yes you are right.
The bar per hour was just a ballpark estimate at the end of the dive:
you look at your spg and immediately knows if your average consumption
is ok. Nevertheless the liter/minutes figure is the way to go.
