Re: gas pedal

No, is it bent at all. Maybe a previous owner nad wide feet and was hitting when braking. The little pad on the end should be vertical.

Cheers

Take it off, put it in a vice and bend it back again.

My driving instructor used the term gas instead of throttle too. He claimed it was because it was shorter therefore easier to say.

Re: gas pedal

In my humble opinion, the naming of the pedals Accelerator, Brake and Clutch leaves it very simply as A, B and C for speed of communication, or is that too simple.
