If you’re anything like me then you’ll jump at the chance to drive anything that’s different from your daily driver. I could care less if it’s a twenty year old Toyota Tercel or a brand new Lamborghini, if you offer me the keys, it’s very doubtful I’ll say no. Because of this mindset I’ve manage to finagle myself behind the wheel of some pretty trick hardware over the years which in turn, has helped me build up my knowledge of cars. There is however one tidbit of information that, regardless of the car, I just can never seem to remember: what side of the car is the fuel tank on? I know it seems insignificant, but in reality it’s not. I hate, and I mean really hate pulling up to a crowded gas station only to find that I’ve pulled up on the wrong side of the pump. So here’s a quick little tip that’s applicable to most late model cars.
On your fuel gauge there is a little arrow that tips you off as to what side your fuel cap is on. I never noticed this until today, but low and behold there it was! So, the next time you rent, borrow or steal a car and need fuel, simply look down at your fuel gauge for a little hint. Seriously… who knew?
