2009 Nissan 370Z: Wrong Fuel Gauge

May 13, 2009

WRONG Fuel Gauge in Nissan 370Z

There are different ways to do things, then there are incorrect ways to do things.

Today, I ink up my WRONG stamp for the 370Z's fuel gauge, which consists of 16 little lights that go out to indicate its running low on dino swill. I don't like digital fuel gauges and this is one of the worst, since it becomes difficult to read when directly in the sun. This entire digital unit looks like what the 80s thought the future would look like. Or a Borg eye implant. Or that Simpsons episode when Lisa gets married in England and Big Ben's face has been replaced in the future with a digital clock blinking 12.

Sorry Nissan, you are incorrect, and with apologies to Depeche Mode, WRONG.
