What Your Daddy Never Told You

The following information is revolutionary. It may change your life. Brace yourself.

Whether it's a rental or it's new, your husband or your wife's, a parent or a sibling's - there are few things worse than getting in an unfamiliar automobile and wanting or needing to fuel up. You never know which side of the vehicle the tank is on. (Can I hear an Amen?) You crane your neck and your mirrors to try to see the tank, but often you cannot crane far enough.

Your craning days are over.

Simply look at the dashboard inside the vehicle. On the gas gauge there is an arrow that points to the left or to the right. That arrow is pointing to the side of the car the tank is on. It's true. I KNOW! Mind-blowing information, huh?

Now, let's all de-lurk and post whether this is news to you. (I heard it in church two weeks ago, and I haven't been the same since. I've been giddy with this tank knowledge.)

And for those of you who knew, let's not be too smug. Okay?

We have 4 vehicles, and they don't all gas up on the same side. I'm on my way out to the driveway to check on your very valuable information.

Thanks,
Cas

You've changed my life for the better today...
Any clues for how to find the annoying button which pops the gas tank lid? I'm challenged even in my own vehicles at times.

Anna said...

Are you for real?! No way!
I can't wait to look in my car to see if it's true!
What a great idea!

p.s.I just have to mention that my word verification is "fookjd." Doesn't that seem like it might be a Scandinavian curse word? ;)

It's like scales have fallen from my eyes!

while it is true, it is not true of all cars. :( sadly.

Dan said...

Alas, alack...my Impala has no such arrow. :-(

Anna said...

Now I'm sad :(

i will honestly tell you that i knew that, but only after my sister pointed it out (with a wee bit of smugness) to me this summer.
my life is certainly easier for the knowledge.
