While 1511 has nothing to do with Fibonacci numbers 240 is the product of 1,1,2,3,5,8, the first 6 non-zero digits of the Fibonacci sequence.

You even mentioned that the only reason we used it was because of primitive measuring tools, which isn't a good reason at all.

The whole point of radians was to have a natural, elegant unit rather than an arbitrary one like degrees, but diameterans would be just as bad as degrees.
