Do you always forget which side of the car to fill the fuel? Well wonder no more. I understand that there is a little arrow next to the fuel gauge on the car control that points to which side the fuel cap is. So take a quick peek the next time you draw up to a petrol station.

  • Does it depend on the make and model of the car? I’ve never noticed it in the dashboard section of gauges etc.


  • Yes indeed I often use this as well! Really great advice!


  • I never had problem remembering this, but it is good to know this.


  • I often use this too! Great advice!


  • I don’t have a problem remembering what side it is on but I know a lot of people who do! I’ll get them to check it out – I have never noticed this myself!


  • No I have never had that problem but my husband does. Probably because he doesn’t fill it up very often. I will have to check it out and show him. Thanks!


  • No; I have never had this problem with the fuel tank gauge; however I do know people who do get quite confused.


  • I only recently discovered this too! Just something that makes life a little bit easier


  • nice to read stories on this great site
