Stuck At Home? 40 Household Hacks You Can Try Right Now

Arrow on Gas Gauge

This is something you may or may not have noticed before. Next to the gas gauge of nearly every car that’s been manufactured since 2010, there is an arrow that either points to the left or the right. A lot of people may not have even noticed it before it was pointed out to them. This is simply a way to indicate to the driver whether their gas cap is on the left side of the car or the right side of the car. Most people don’t need a reminder because after filling their tank once or twice with a new car, it becomes instinct what side to pull into at the gas station. However, next time you drive a rental car, remember that the arrow is there; otherwise, you’ll look foolish when you try to fill your tank only to realize the cap is on the other side.
