Great idea. Oh, BTW, my `95 GMC Safari van has the filler on the left side, and the pump handle on the qauge is on the right. Oh well....
I agree, that or they should put a gas cap on both sides going to the same tank. Would definitely help at busy gas stations.
i`d probably remember what side of the car it was on if i had to do it myself.
as for the article: I hate people that put out bullsh*t stories like this and swear it`s true because they`re smart enough to "figure out" something that no one else has.
Just memorize where the thing is before you even get in the car.
Doesn`t always work.
You can also see, faintly, the warning light for gas. It`s got the same icon with the gas hose going off to the right.
oh i know i remember, its not that hard. and i drive different cars all the time, just have a look before you get in, and if you cant remember....there is something wrong.
yeah, i agree with wafuu, people are not very observant...
(It`s on the left, btw.)
Can`t check whether this is true for my car... but if it is, it would be awesome for people who ride multiple cars.
i just bought a new car and can never remeber which side the gas tank is on plus i always confuse the lights and windshield wiper turn on sticks thingies around. ya know, so i turn on the wipers instead of the lights every night. *sigh*
And even so, this is only useful to people who rent cars on a regular basis. And even then it`s been proven that the icon isn`t always right. Infact there`s no relation between the two really. Besides, with the bigger vehicles, most gas stations have extra long hoses.
And I bet nobody`s ever really said anything because its so simple that nobody figured it out lol
