Have you ever pulled up to a gas pump and hesitated because you couldn't remember which side of the car your gas tank is on? Even worse, you actually parked your car at the pump, got out, and discovered that your tank was actually on the other side of the car?
It used to happen in our family a lot. There's my car that I drive every day, hubby's car, his company-issued truck, and my daughter's car. It's easy to forget which side the gas tank is on for each car.
But I recently learned something that no one ever told me: your gas gauge has an indicator for that. Who knew? Hubby swears that he knew all along, but he just forgot. Yeah, right.
The next time you get into your car, take a peek at your gas gauge. See that little triangle next to the gas pump icon? It will point to the left or the right. That's the side that your gas tank is on. As you can see, my gas tank is on the right side of my car. Pretty neat, huh?
If you're feeling a little smug right now because you already knew that, good for you. But if you had absolutely no clue, don't feel bad. I feel your pain.
