Fuel icon on dash, arrow pointing to wrong side
« on: November 25, 2019, 19:44:21 »
Hey all
Anyone else have the tiny arrow by fuel pump icon point to the wrong side,?
Mine is pointing to the right when the filler cap is on the left.

That's actually showing your DTE (distance to empty - ie, how long to go before you need to refuel)

Ahhh ok thanks
Most other manufacturers it's to show which side the fuel cap is on. At least it is with Mercedes. I thought it was a universal thing.
Thanks for clarifying.

Yeah, if you look at the photo you posted here, you can see the "standard" image showing your fuel filler orientation, as opposed to the display you're probably looking at which shows an arrow pointing to the fuel bowser (ie, DTE)

Never noticed a second icon, will take a closer look in a minute.
Thanks for that
