How does this even happen? You need to know what side your fuel cap is on, people
@A Studly Muffin, sometimes I switch cars (don't own one so I borrow either parent's) and the cap is on opposite sides. I've done some shameful turn around at the gas pumps
@Silver6456, haha. At least you didn't do this.
@Silver6456, did you know that there is a little arrow next to the fuel gauge that signals where the filler is? That's how you know when you switch cars. It is actually quite helpful when you drive a lot of cars.
@Pusseidon , I've been driving the same car for 4 years and I still look at the arrow every time I go to the gas station.
@A Studly Muffin, its not because they dont know. Its becuase the gas station is busy and they dont want to wait for a pump on the correct side or try turning around and risk losing the spot. Theyre just ***holes who clog up the system due to a lack of patience. If you ever want to see an example of this go to a really busy sams club or costco gas station.
@DeadLogic, at BJs and Costco they actually recommend that you use whatever is open no matter what side your gas tank is on. That way people get through the lines quicker. They make their pumps long enough to service almost any car/Suv/caravan.
@Pusseidon , not all cars have that by the way but yes a lot of them do becase i have an infinity g35 and qx4 both 2003 but only the G has the marker
@Pusseidon , I have heard of this actually! For some reason it isn't always true though. My dad's 2014 Subaru Forester was opposite. I blamed the car on that one haha
@Pusseidon , not every car has that. My mom's accord doesn't and I've seen a few others that also don't so it's not a guarantee
@Pusseidon , Yeah, my 2000 Pontiac Sunfire doesn't have the arrow.
@Pusseidon , I have a Ford Ranger that doesn't have those arrows
@A Studly Muffin, It can happen because the other ones for the correct side may be taken and you're too impatient to wait like me.
@FrostyKnife, have you ever actually driven? You know if you're too impatient you can just back in on the correct side....
@A Studly Muffin, I'm talking about when pumps on the right side are taken and I don't want to wait. Yes I do drive, I drive for a living actually.
@FrostyKnife, so just go in from the other side? I'm having trouble seeing what you mean. Every pump is accessible to every car in one way or another.
@A Studly Muffin, I don't know about America, but in Australia where I live you can't reverse into a petrol station for the most part, it's one way in and one way out.
@FrostyKnife, ooohhh. In america, every pump is in the middle of a lot (so you can drive all the way around them and come in from any direction)
@A Studly Muffin, They're positioned like that here, but you only go in from one direction.
@FrostyKnife, that's weird. Going in like that would make sense then. Also, how's tomorrow going so far?
some lines are 1 direction only (like Costco) and the hose is long enough to reach the far side. I don't see the problem here.
"Congratulations, you played yourself"
I feel like he is still doing a lot less work than if he switched sides
What's the issue? If filling stations didn't want you to do this, they wouldn't make the hose long enough to reach the other side of the car. Better this than everyone queuing and one pump sitting unused...
Just know you gas tank fill up slot is ALWAYS, I repeat always, on the side the arrow of your fuel gauge points towards.
Sad to say, when I was young, stupid and just got my car I saw people do this at the Costco gas bar and did it as well for a bit. I would always go to the shortest line and ended up doing that sometimes. I've smartened up scince then.
I hate these people.
I'm too lazy to learn the bus schedule so I just walk to campus...
Can you be more specific?
Your gas gage has a arrow next to it pointing to which side the cap is on. I know this and still pull up backwards sometimes 😒
My car has enough trouble filling up on the correct side. (BTW does anyone happen to know why this might be?)
