This unit has 2 fuel gauges.
It was found in the launching car somewhere in Kuching.

HAHAHAHA! The wonders of quality control in Malaysia.

Soon they will make a press release stating that it's a world first where there is one tank for diesel and one tank for unleaded so that the consumer can have a choice at the bowser.

Wonder whether the idea comes from the steamboat restaurant, one for tomyam and the other, plain chicken soup? Getting into hot soup?

.............................., I have asked someone in Proton for an explanation on the meter panel with two fuel gauges. It is not a Proton assembly problem but a vendor problem, as Siemens VDO delivers the meter panel as a complete unit to Proton. The photo is a pre-launch leaked photo as there were only 3 Personas with these sesat meter panels, and they’ve already taken steps to rectify it as well as on the supplier’s side before the car was launched. It’s not fair to just bash without knowing whether the photo came from - now we know it is a preproduction car."

malaysia boleh, don't the engineer think out of the box, no wonder proton more makan minyak than at least to honda city or toyota vios. come on folks, oredi 22 years, customers are much mature and more demanding since most of the rakyat earn more compare to last time, when public earns more, they start to demand to meet their lifestyle satisfaction, car is one of them. Brand "new" car by PROTON, better call it GEN3 or Gen2 sedan, why bother to waste time and change name to PERSONA, sori guys, i;m not simply taruk them, but 22 years of experience, this is the work they come out and hope to create the interest among the customers, look at Perodua, i'm impress with the progress, dun think they are come second after PROTON, they are the national automobile in Malaysia, we can see more Perodua MYVI than any other PROTON models on the street in the country. Proton oh Proton, actually..do you do any market research?dun simply come out with one model and hope it will do well in the market...

The only car I ever saw where two fuel gauges were actually part of the design was the 1980's Jaguar Series III XJ6.
It was an out-and-out power car, absolute gas guzzler and required Two fuel tanks. Naturally it had two fuel gauges, as the driver had to manually control which tank to draw the fuel from.

Heheheh...Proton also got two fuel gauges, ah...

Quit laughing people. The fuel gauge on the right is there to confirm the one on the left. That is why it doesn't have a pump light. This baby is feature-rich and you need to learn to appreciate it.
