Which Side Of Your Car Is Your Gas Tank ??

I have been driving (legally) for over a decade. One would think I would
have noticed the little secret on my dash that was staring me right in the
face the whole time. I didn't and I bet you probably haven't either.

Quick question, what side of your car is your gas tank? If you are
anything like me, you probably can't remember right away. My solution
is to uncomfortably stick my head out the window, strain my neck and look.

If you don't do this in your own car you definitely have done it in a borrowed or rental car.

Well ladies and gentlemen, I'm going to share with you my little secret so
you will no longer look like Ace Ventura on your way to the gas station or
put your neck at risk of uncomforted or injury.

If you look at your gas gauge, you will see a small icon of a gas pump.
The handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the pump. If your tank is on the left, the handle will be on the left. If your tank is on the right, the handle will be on the right
(see photo above). It is that simple!

I don't know how you feel right now but when I found out this morning I felt cheated!

Why don't the dealers share such important information with car buyers? I don't understand why this isn't in the drivers ed manual? I don't get why any mechanic I have ever been too or know has even thought of
mentioning this to me? The only possible explanation can be that all these people probably don't even know!
