Who Knew This?

I am always doing this,we have 3 cars and I cannot remember where the silly gas tank thing is on any of them. Now I know!! No more Ace Ventura for me:)

Thought this little FYI was something we all need to know!!

I have been driving for sixty four 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 your driving 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). It is that
simple!


Don't feel dumb, just go out and share the world's best kept auto secret
with your friends.

My husband just told me that the other day. He had just found out. Now why weren't we told this years ago.....life would have been so much easier. I can't tell you how many times I pulled up to a gas pump and got out to find I was on the wrong side. Now I remember when I was a kid, that my dad's cars always had the gas cap hidden under the license plate. Didn't matter what side of the pump you pulled up to.

I tried this after I saw this posted on another blog. The icon on my dashboard doesn't have the handle on the same side as my gas tank. DH says it's wrong on his too. I have a Lexus and he has a Honda. Is it because it's Japanese?
