I actually for a half second that there was supposed to be a light there or something... :lol: You know, like the arrow points to a light to remind you it's open?

Ahh that's kinda ringing a bell. I had it up on the hoist after its purchase earlier this year and one of the guys checking it out was pointing at the power steering gear and saying that there was a power steering booster valve which he'd only seen on the LTD's. Now I'm wondering what else might have been mixed in. I don't suppose someone here knows a little something more about the extra gear that went into these "hybrids"?

The front headrest adjusters on late EL's are the same as the AU ones :)

The whole which side is my fuel cap on isnt hard anyway. Every car on the market puts the fuel gauge on the side of the cluster that the fuel guage is on. The exceptions to the rule put an arrow on the guage to tell you the correct side. ie ba falcons etc.

not quite true..... take a look at a trayback landcruiser.....


Im checking and not seeing a problem.

Do you also realise there is a squillion different 75 series (not sure about 78/79 series, I have worked on but not much playing with clusters) cluster setups that put the gauge in different spots, patrols are the same.

As for commonwhores they are back wards cars anyway, European crap design modified to suit f**k up weirdo GM lovers here and in the f**k up USA.

Vic,

All EL's get the 'reminder' as to where the fuel cap is :)

Ride: EL Falcon

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

To be fair to Uncle Henry when he built the mighty EL falcon, he did realise that a lot of these would be rental cars.

Not everyone checks which side the filler door is on, where the park brake is, the indicators, wipers, lights control etc is. In fact, most people just grab the keys, jump in and drive off.

So, when you need to fill it up, you drive up to a servo, and think duuuh which side is the filler on?

So I think it is a good idea.

But sure, if you've owned the car for more than a week, ya should know!

Dang.

Ive never noticed this light before - is it on high series clusters?
What is it exactly, and when does it activate.

It isnt really a light... But it just says "<Fuel Door?" it sits under the pointer on the tacho.

Yes thats right. Its just printed underneath the tacho with an arrow pointing to the left. In retrospect they should have had some fancy idiot light for the fuel door, afterall, it was a $50,000 car when new - it should have had a fancy idiot light!
