Puzzle Details

My BrainBashers electronic world atlas has developed a fault, I did a listing of miles from Scotland to particular countries and here is the result:

England      12,000 miles
Peru          6,000 miles
Egypt         9,000 miles
Iceland      11,000 miles

How far away did it list Ethiopia as?

Answer: 11,000 miles.

Each vowel (AEIOU) is worth 1,000 miles, each consonant is worth 2,000 miles.
