Who Knew This ???

I have been driving for nearly 44 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 gas station wondered...mmm, which side is the gas filler cap?
My normal solution was to stick my head out 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 gas station or put your neck at risk of discomfort or injury.
If you look at your gas gauge, you will see a small ico
n of a gas pump?

The handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the gas 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!

Don't feel dumb, just go out and share the world's best kept auto secret with your friends.


  1. Hmmm.. kenapa kereta saya tak macam cerita kat atas ni ye... Gambar petrol pump & handle kat sebelah kanan, tapi yg real nya, petrol pump kereta saya kat sebelan kiri..

  2. Ye ke? Kak Limah pakai kereta Malaysia atau imported? I rase kereta imported je yang ikut sistem tu kot.

  3. Akak guna Hyundai Getz (CBU) Korea. Kalau kereta M'sia tak kena, kereta import pun tak kena.. mmg tak sesuai guna teori tu kat M'sia kot.. he he he...
