What font does your car dashboard use?
August 13, 2011 9:56 AM   Subscribe

Name that font: What font is commonly used on car dashboards? Not for the speedometer numbers and such, but for the 'Unleaded Fuel Only', or the 'Service Engine Soon' text?

I know this will probably vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but I wondered if anyone would have some clues here. It's likely to be sans-serif and in all caps.

This is not a complete answer, but... I found this reference image on google. And I'm comparing it to a variety of fonts here.

Someone better than I at matching text could probably identify the match.

In colin_i's link, the font looks like Eurostile.
