If you don’t already know this tip, this is definitely one of those moments where you think, “OHHH!”
I was reminded of this yesterday when my friend Hottie and I had to stop for gas as we drove our rental car back to the airport. We were in a hurry, and Hottie was driving. “What side is the gas tank on?” she asked. “Quick! Make a guess!”
“Left side. Ta da!” I said.
She raised her eyebrows, wondering how I knew. It’s super simple: look at your dashboard. The gas nozzle on the fuel gauge will tell you.
In the image above, the gas nozzle is on the right – so the gas tank is, too.
Sometimes there is an arrow as well. This can be on either the left side or the right side, and will point in the direction of the gas tank.
