Did you know?

Every car is different. And, on every car, the gas tank is on a different side. This is one of the annoying things about getting used to a new car. 

You pull in to get gas, and cannot remember which side the gas tank is on. Then you pull up to the side you think it is on, and inevitably, it is on the other side. And then you look like an idiot as you pull your car around to the other side, looking around to make sure nobody saw you looking like a dork on the wrong side.

I have solved all of your problems. Well really, my friend Rachel has solved all of your problems.

Perhaps everyone in the world knows about this except me, but I will share in case you do not.

Did you know, that when you look at the gas gauge on your car, there is a little arrow?
Look at the little graphic of the gas pump...and the arrow pointing to the right
Yes, that means that the gas tank is located on the right side of the car.

Mind blown.

Did not know this.

Please tell me I am not the only one who did not know this.

Please.

Sorry, I've known about this for a number of years now. The worst is some cars don't have any arrow.

I had never heard of this before either. Amazing!

I just learned it in the last year or two. I guess that's a fail for our driver's ed instructors.

Sorry Mrs. Frank, I knew about the arrow. But I'm happy to hear you know about it now too :)
