On a lot of the older VWs (and Mercedes cars, as well) it says R and
1/1.  The "R" supposedly stood for "reserve."

I had a Saab for a while that went from 0 to 1, and the middle of the
0 lit up when fuel was low.

User interface inconsistencies between cars are actually quite
rampant, as anyone who's ever sat down in a rental car and tried to
figure out how to turn on the windshield wipers can attest. ;)
