Hmm I would ahve said replete but it is at the other end of the gauge. It's not a reverse symbol to indicate that the pump is siphoning gas?? Happy WW

Knowing where you've been and the fact that it says "Gasolina" I am going to guess that it came from an older Alfa Romeo. And Spanish for "Empty" must be "Rio", but then I'd have to change the car to a Spanish made Audi (only because) I can't actually think of a Spanish Car Company, but I know that several brands are made there by NON-Spanish Companies! ~ jb///

R is for Reserve (French)?

Happy WW!

No idea dear...as I read some of the comments here, R stands for race or reverse. Maybe Sandy Carlson is right. *wink*

Mine is up at Photographic Memories.

No idea. I don't drive. The 'R' stands for Refill?
Happy WW!

REALLY empty??? lol....Happy WW.

Well, 1/1 would be full, 1/2, half full, R stands for reserve. Let's see...something Italian? Alfa Romeo? Fiat? Lamborghini? That's my extent of Italian cars that I know of!!!

BTW, our Honda ATV also has a reserve tank!!!

Happy WW!

R is for REFILL? :)) just a wild guess!

R for Really empty?
Maybe refill is a better guess.
Happy WW!

Right after I Posted my answer, I asked my husband, who restores VW's for a hobby, and he knew exactly what it meant! Should have asked him first!
