not really many people know this but when you pull in to a petrol station you need to know what side the fuel door is look at the dash there is an Arrow pointing to the left of the car <fuel door

Just tells you what side of the car is fuel door is
pointless but harmless

It would be there due to Fairlanes and LTDs having the fuel door open light being fitted in that small car outline diagram.
