Have you ever rolled into a gas station, intent on filling up your tank, and completely blanked on which side of your car the gas door is on? Friends, it is a moment of deep and abject shame – but thankfully, it’s a moment that’s easily avoided. You see, car manufacturers have built a safeguard into almost every vehicle on the road for this exact situation.
Yep. It’s been staring you in the face for as long as you’ve been driving. That little arrow next to the gas pump on your dash? It points to the side of your vehicle that you put the fuel in on. It’s almost irritating how simple and brilliant this little trick is. Almost.
