PSA: Wrong fee rates on block explorers

Tradeblock.com says the fee rate is 216.81 sat/B.
smartbit.com.au says the fee rate is 90.50 sat/B. — Update: smartbit.com.au has fixed their fee rates since this article. Thank you.

…but what does this transaction “weigh“?

Where are the 160.2 sat/B we are looking for?

At last, BitFlyer gets it right by using scattershot:

BitFlyer lists all: the fee per raw tx size, the fee per WU and the actual fee rate.

Appendix: Additional honorary mentions

Blockchair tells us the “fee per kB” is 0.00216813 BTC. — Update: Blockchair has fixed their fee rates since this article. Thank you.
Blockchain.info shows the fee rate over raw byte length and a correct “Fee per weight unit” of 40.2 sat/WU, which however doesn’t compare to the established fee rates.
btc.com shows virtual size, but calculates the fee with the raw byte length: 90.5 sats/B. — Update: BTC.com has fixed their fee rates since this article. Thank you.
blocktrail.com shows stripped size of 364 bytes and a fee rate of 216.8 sat/B.
Blockcypher tells us the transaction’s size is 364 bytes, and doesn’t even give us a fee rate.
