it's not a light. its just reflective when light, such as sun, hits it. it's suppose to tell you which side your fuel door is.

Yeah my light always seems to come on right before I end up running out of gas rofl
J/K but yeah it always caught my eye, then I started noticing that I only saw it in the morning on my way to school, then I figured out that it was just the sun.

like someone else said, a high majority of all cars tell what side the fuel tank is on. I am glad its there, sometimes I switch cars and have to gas up and forget for a split second what side the tank is on, either that or you can lean forward and check in your side Mirrors.

when i gas up, i usually have it so the gask tank is away from the gas pump. that way when i top off the gas/reach the maximum payment all the excess gas flows through the hose and into the tank.

I've mastered the art of the After Image Technique.
