Which side?
Some years ago when I was driving a rental car, while on vacation, I needed to fill the gas tank. I drove into a filling station and realized that I didn’t know which side of the car should be next to the pump. I pulled off to the side of the station so I could get out to find on which side of the car the gas filler was located. Then I had to drive over to a pump to refuel the car. This happened more than once because I liked to rent different car models during my travels.

One time I was looking in the owner’s manual for one of my cars for something unrelated to this problem. While looking in the manual I stumbled onto a solution to the “Which side” problem. It is very simple; next to the little gas-pump image on the fuel gauge is a small arrowhead pointing to the side of the vehicle where the fuel port is located.

Knowing this about one car, I quickly checked my other car and found the small arrowhead on that fuel gauge as well. Since then, I’ve always pulled up to a fueling station on the correct side.

As it turned out, my cars have the fuel port on opposite sides from each other as can be seen in the pictures below.
