I recently received an email I'm sure many of you did too. Rather than forward it to everyone I know, I thought I would post it here, for all to read.
It goes like this:
"I have been driving for nearly 20 years... I would think I should have noticed the little secret on my dashboard that was staring me in the face the whole time...I didn't...and I bet you didn't either...
Have you ever rented or borrowed a car and when arriving at the petrol station wondered...mmm, which side is the filler cap?
My normal solution was to stick my head out of 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 petrol station or put your neck at risk of discomfort or injury.
If you look at your fuel gauge, you will see a small icon of a fuel pump?
The handle of the fuel pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the fuel 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!"
Well, I went to my car to check and next to the pump icon I found an arrow pointing to the side of the car where the fuel tank is - so there is some truth to this after all!
