    Dashboard secret all cars.. ssssh!!!

    Have you ever got out of a car (maybe a new car or a hire car) and didn't know which side the filler cap is on and then looked like a **** walking round the car trying to find it.

    Or before arriving at the petrol station you've gone ...mmm, which side is the filler cap? Then driven to a pump only to find out your on the wrong side?

    Who would have known this little secret was on the dashboard its staring you in the face the whole time...and I bet you didn't noitce it...

    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!

    It is that simple!

    Well, I went to my car to check and next to the pump icon I found an the handle on the side of the car where the fuel tank is!

    Bet now your all gonna run out to your cars and check this out!! You'll find I'm right!!!

    i didnt know that... you can usually access your tank from the wrong side anyway though. turn the nozzle upside down as you approach from above
