That is strange, never seen that warning on anything before. But like said seeing there is a fuel pump and water drops, I am going with water in your fuel.

You all have it wrong. It's a warning light to apply KY Jelly before the next fill up.

I don't own a 98, but I do own a 2005 and I checked the vehicle symbol glossary chart. It shows a gas pump (like in your pictures) with a slash going through the pump. The glossary states that it a Fuel Pump Reset.

I would say water in fuel. Diesels usually have this. IDK if that cluster was used in foreign Rangers that were diesel, but that would be my guess. Gasoline engine vehicles usually don't have this light because a little water in the fuel won't cause as many problems as in a diesel engine.
