I hate that the 95 doesn't have it. With the 93, I can clearly hear the second unlock pulse as I approach the car. The gas door is the audible signal for me.

Pontiac was thinking about several options when they made the gauges and other things that they never actually put in production.

Oil life monitor, rear steer...

92-93 had spots for the CCR buttons, but that wasn't an option till 94.

I have never had any experience with a locking fuel door on a Bonny. But my 85 Buick did.
