  1. I watched a similar video not long ago that said the exact opposite of pen lids. They aren’t like that to prevent choking, but rather to make it easier to put the lid on the pen with air pressure pushing it off.

  2. Ad too- the placement of the gas gauge in the cluster also indicates which side the tank is if there’s no arrow.

  3. They mean the hole is for you to stick dry noodles thru so you can measure a serving before cooking.
