Which side is the gas tank on?

Rental car dilemma! Which side is the gas tank on?

Most people never think about this because they know the car they drive every day.  I have found myself asking this question a lot when on vacation though.  Every single time I am in a rental car as I am pulling up to the gas station to fill up the tank.  Which side is the gas tank on?

GirlDad Hack! For most cars, there is a simple way to tell without getting out of the car.

It always makes me appreciate the thought that goes into product design when I learn about these little things. It may be small but it makes a difference. That’s how you tell the difference between good and great. Just picture yourself above trying to pull that gas pump to the other side. It is not fun to be that guy at the gas station.

Arrows point the way!

Now that you know it’s there. You will always know which side of the car the gas tank is on. The little arrow in the gas level dial points to the side it is on! So the next time when you’re not sure and you’re pulling up to the gas station, now you’ll know.
