The Worlds Best Kept Auto
I have been driving (legally) for around
a half a century. One would
think I would have noticed the little
secret on my dash that was staring
me right in the face the whole

Quick question, what side of your car is your
gas tank filler cap? If you are anything like me, you probably can't
remember right away. My solution is to uncomfortably stick my head out the
window, strain my neck and look. If you don't do this in your own car you
more than likely 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 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 pump.
If your tank filler pipe is on the left, the handle will be on the left.
If your filler pipe 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 about this

this to us all? The only possible explanation can be that all these people
probably don't even know themselves!
Go out and share the world's best kept
auto secret with your friends. This information is way too important to be kept
