You're fast Jerry....too fast. You snuck his post in before I could edit it. It's a lot more informative now. Original post removed because it was just plain lame. You make good points though.

Between the users manual and the owners manual -- 1000+ pages.

And the fuel requirements are around page 560 of 700 in one and 260 something of 300+ in the other......

I just wanted to know where the rear windshield washer disappeared to........

People spend time second guessing something very simple without going to the provided source that clearly has the information they need. So they ask a question on a forum, when they could just as easily read the manual. Guess what - the answer(s) are there and NOT HARD to find within a few minutes, probably in less time than it took to get to this forum's website and typing out the question. Also not helpful when one DOES NOT read the manual, then asks questions on a forum, and a participant answers the questions, while also stating they haven't read it either! The first response on this thread was the case, but additional responses were not. Not trying to bash the OP, but did he not come across the information needed from the manual because he hasn't looked yet? This kind of stuff cracks me up. lol
Maybe. It is true that the manual contains a bunch of good information. I am probably unusual in that I read all the manuals before I even had the car and then I read some of them again after I brought the car home. Nonetheless, reading the manual apparently isn't as effective for some people as engaging with other people about the issue. Hopefully one of those other people has read the manual and can offer the manual's recommendation to the conversation.

IMO, @Badge56 didn't contribute in a positive way. @srbrubak did, and in doing so @srbrubak also pointed out that the information was in the manual and avoided attacking the OP in the process - an approach that is less likely to contribute to an adversarial environment on this forum. There are many examples of me doing precisely that - I answer a poster's question by quoting the manual and in doing so attempt to show them that is the source of information for other questions they may have.

This should be a place we come to help each other, not demean or denigrate each other. I too will admit to sometimes getting frustrated when someone posts a question that is currently being discussed in another thread or is clearly stated in the manual, but I would suggest to @Badge56 and others if they can't bring themselves to just ignoring those posts, to please try to steer the OP in the right direction without attacking them.

Needlessly well said. Maybe it's the mood I'm in today....

Many of us did indeed answer the question posed. Only 1 person did not, and that post has since been removed/humorously replaced. Most of this thread's length (and late resurrection) is mostly about said deleted post.

I am a software developer and as much as I hate to admit it in the past on one more than one occasion I have suggested to customers that they take some time to RTFM. The information may be in the manual but quite often it buried in some obscure section and it can be very frustrating to try to find it.

There have been many times I have tried to find something in the owner's manual using the index or online search tool and was unable to find it. Because I have searched for many things, sometimes using newer editions/revisions of the manual, and now have a feel for how the manual is organized, I can find an answer and post it. Sometimes a topic is split under two sections of the manual. I put the page number in case there is more info available that a person might be interested in. Some vans came with a user guide and not the complete owner's manual. Many people don't usually stop to read a 600+ page manual. I will sometimes work through the manual on a long trip when I am the passenger. Using the forum search tool can also be frustrating at times. I have looked for information that I've read in the past and it is sometimes a challenge to find it again.

So, answer if you want, or just ignore the question.
