1 lightyear = 3.1e16 feet? Unit Conversion can be more precise than that

I just switched over from Google and one area that's lacking is unit conversions.

When I convert lightyears to feet on Google it gives me 8 significant figures.

But on DuckDuckGo, all I get is 2.


Anybody have any thoughts or opinions? I don't know about you, but I do a lot of unit converting

I think that Instant Answer is part of the first one here. Maybe you can ask there for an improvement.

It's not that I don't know a way to do unit conversion, it's just that I'm trying to switch search completely to DuckDuckGo.

I've been a Google user for my whole life, and so I have expectations from a search engine. It would be so easy for me to switch without a hitch if I barely noticed the difference.
