ive never seen that before. my check gauge light comes on when my fuel is low. maybe that means water in fuel? i know some vehicles have a warning light for that.

Interesting, what is the year of the truck (and cluster if different)? I see water in the gas icon, but that cannot be normal. Did that year truck even have a low fuel light?

The light is when you should add antifreeze to the gas, makes your truck run better and adds about 30hp.

well, the icon is on a 98 ranger. anyone with a 98-2000 should also have the same icon in their cluster.

I just checked my old gauge cluster that came out of my 99. I have the hole for the light but nothing is there. Shined a flashlight threw and nothing was there.

My 98 didnt have that light, I have shinned a flashlight around the cluster to see all the different lights it had. When I had low fuel the check gauge light would come on.
