How do I know which side of the car the fuel tank is on?

Some cars have their gas tank on the driver side, and some on the passenger side. As a result, it can be hard to remember which side of the vehicle your fuel tank is on. The fuel gauge is designed to help you remember which side of the car your tank is located on. There is an image of a fuel pump on the fuel gauge, with an arrow pointing either left or right. This arrow points to which side of the vehicle the fuel tank is on.
