    Default Did you know be honest.

    My wife sent me this. Not that she knows how to fill the tank anyway.
    I rent many different cars in my work and yes i'm always getting out to check. So come on tell the truth everybody.


    I have been driving (legally) for many years. 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 uncofortably stick my head out the window, strain my neck and look. If you don't do this in your own car you definetly 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 uncomfort or injury.
    If you look at your gas guage, 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 importnant 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 explantion can be that all these people probably don't even know!
    Go out and share the worlds best kept auto secret with your friends as this is information is way too important to be kept secret.

    On my astra the fuel gauge was in the centre so that wouldn't work out.

    'twas a good thought though.
