Edit: I knew I should have taken a screenshot while I had a chance. Sneaky Jonco.
Thank goodness, more and more vehicles have little indicator arrows located on their gas gauge to show which side of the car has access to the gas tank. I often drive rentals, so it can be a guessing game.
There is a reason the hose is long enough to reach either side of the car.
All of my gas caps are on the drivers side but I will go to the left side as fast as the right if the pump is open.
