What side of the car is the fuel door on?

Different cars have fuel doors on different sides, so it can be hard to remember which side of the vehicle your fuel door is on. The fuel gauge is designed to help you remember where your fuel door is. On the fuel gauge, next to the symbol of the gas pump, is an arrow. This arrow marks which side of the vehicle your fuel door is on, so that you don’t have to get out of the car to check.
