Yep, the C6 is the same way, not a true indicator. I got that email
some time back and found it an unreliable bit of trivia. So quit
looking at the hose and look at which side of the gage the pump is on,
just as good. I believe that it is an incorrect interpretation of the
theory that it is the nozzle showing the location of the filler on the
car. It may have nothing to do with the filler location as it would
have to have a hose hanging down like a swinging dick for cars with a
rear center filler. Do they make those any more, not the swinging dick
but the center fill?
Not sure how they can be correct when the attached site says it is not
an indicator as to where the filler is located. Even those that have
an arrow pointing to the filler location have the icon nozzle on the
Post number 11 picture.
Again post number 11 picture.
The Mustangs have had it in the center until this last model change,
how would you mark that location?
My truck has the nozzle on the right side of the icon and the filler
on the left and I rented one like it before I bought it, rental may
not be a prerequisite for a "correct" icon.
Really don't see how it makes the C5 old for that matter. It all looks
like someone thought it was actually a way to tell where the filler
was on an automobile and it has nothing to do with it in reality, it's
another internet email that is untrue.
