- You’re not in your own car (or have really bad memory)
- You drive into the service station
- Which side is the filler on?
- Jack Dee calls it Petrol Cap Shame
There is a way out of this dilemma. Just look at the petrol gauge and, if it has the pump symbol, which side the filler nozzle is shown. In my experience, since hearing this tip several years ago, it will match the side the actual filler is found on the car! If it just says “Petrol” you’re stuffed!
