Same thing as far as I know. Both mean 3 litre engine. If it's an ad your reading, some print 3.0L. some 3L.

Interesting. Now I'm wondering why that cop yelled "I've got a 'FIVE OH' man, you can't outrun me". I would have understood him much clearer over the siren if he had just said "five liter".

Well, it sounded beefier anyway. One learns something new every day.

And some, like 3.8L, will say "3800".

Could have been worse; he could have yelled, "I've got a Glock!".

And in the category of useless trivia something I didn't know until recently: A BMW's model designation contains the engine size in the last two digits, i.e. a 318i is a 1.8L, a 535i is a 3.5L, etc.
