My mom sometimes sends me email forwards and I thought this one was exceptionally insightful so I feel it is my duty as a licensed driver to share my new knowledge. Also, this has happened to me on multiple occassions and I also have friends who rent cars on a frequent basis. You can all thank me later. Actually, you can thank my mom.
Have you ever rented or borrowed a car and when arriving at the gas station wondered…hmm, which side is the gas tank on?
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!
End of PSA.
Thank you and good day.
Your Mom is a Genius!
The bad news is that when I got in my own car to check this theory, it was not accurate!!! Do not believe this one afterall…sorry.
