FUEL DOOR? WTF?!
Whats the deal with the "Fuel Door" indicator on the instrument panel? Would I not know how to refuel my Celi if it weren't for that? Am I missing something here, or WTF was Toyota thinking?

Maybe this was designed at the time the engineers decided to use bogus plastic sunroofs or hideous rigid antennas on our Celi's?

Some cars have their fuel doors on the right side. So, manufactures post on the instrument panel which side it is located on. DUR!

Alrighty then...maybe the engineers flipped a coin and it was between the "fuel door" pointer and a "steering wheel" sticker on the steering wheel. rofl Or would that have been TOO insulting to the consumer... spineyes

heehe yea it's on the bright orange font with a triangular arrow. You can't miss it. It's so bright it looks like it's glowing at times. That's why people confuse it for a indicator because of it's bright colored text. grin
