Fw 190 D-9 W.Nr. 600424, "Red 1" of JV-44 and it's 115l. tank triangle sign

Gentlemen

I'm confused while looking at "Red 1" photos published in "Doras of the Galland Circus". I think about it's stencils - fuel triangles.
The yellow triangle next to 115l. tank filling point is unfortunatelly not so good visible.
Artwork in this book show MW-50 letters inside the triangle but I'm not sure, if C3 is correct?
Does anybody know, what was the exact triangle applied to that Dora?
Did late production doras use mixed MW-Fuel system as seen on Bf 109 K-4's ?

regards

Thank You, Eric for your information!
What about joined MW-fuel system. Was it really installed on those late Doras?

This Mw system was installed on late Doras. It was not installed on early ones , repalced by a "normal" fuel tank in the fuselage as on some FW190A-8 .

Wait a little bit more and you will have more informations on these machines , when our title , by JaPo , will be issued in few weeks .
