After playing on the classic GTA 3, I noticed something very unusual.

One of the billboards in GTA 3 near the multistory carpark in Staunton has a weird glitch.

If you look at the billboard named GASOLINE, then walk away from it, past the car park down the little road to get to the boats, you will notice that the sign changes to PETROL as you move away.

Note: This was tried on the XBOX version, but you may find that it works on the PS2 version as well.

I will explain it in a little more detail as to where to find it:

Go to the multistory car park in Staunton, and on the opposite of it there is an orange coloured path going through the middle of a light brown building, near there is the GASOLINE billboard on the corner of the building. Walk away from it, and when you are far enough, it should change to say PETROL!

I was simply walking around, and it from the corner of my eye, I saw it change! Could you tell lots of other people and say who discovered it? Thanks!

Sounds like a LOD, they probably just forgot to update the LOD when they updated the main model. Hardly matters much.

I agree, mvi, but does that mean because it was made in England, it was going to be PETROL, but because it was released in America it is better known as GASOLINE?

Rockstar North is in Scotland, not England. Probably yeah though, someone made the mistake of calling it Petrol

It ain't too bad, and isn't really worth telling anyone, but I thought I would tell someone before someone else discovered it.

Do you think it will be on the PC versions as well? Not that it really-really-really matters though.

lol, the original sign probably said petrol, but they changed it to gasoline, but they forgot to change the low res one to gasoline, haha. Good find

I have the British version of GTA III for the PC (with the BBFC 18 rating, instead of the ESRB M rating), and I discovered the same glitch. Close up, it says Gasoline, but get far enough away and it says Petrol.
