WHO KNEW THIS??? 

I have been driving for over 20 years... I would think I should have noticed the little secret on my dashboard that was staring me in the face the whole time...I didn't...and I bet you didn't either...

Have you ever rented or borrowed a car and when arriving at the gas station wondered...mmm, which side is the gas filler cap?


My normal solution was to stick my head out the window, strain my neck and look, try to see in the side mirrors or even get out of the 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 discomfort 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 gas 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 below). It is that simple!

In all fairness I think 300S&W works for Snopes.

There is a date after which the gauge does tell you which side the filler is on, but I have forgotten what it is.. maybe after '00?
