That's the "past the last/empty mark on the gauge" reserve for early
gauges (that don't have the R area defined), it's the R or red area on
gauges that do have it defined.

It's not a switchable reserve like the early early stuff, just a built
in margin of error in the gauge.   And it's why they say "R" on the
end and not "E"

:)
