Question: Why do they put the gas cap on the passenger side!?
Is this something to confuse the easily-confused!? Is it there only to embarrass you when you rent a car!?Www@Enter-QA@Com

lol Enjoying NY, are ya!? Yes! They do that for the entertainment of others! Enjoy NY, especially the game tomorrow!Www@Enter-QA@Com

I'm old enough to remember when the gas caps were behind the license plate above the back bumper!
<<======old gal

Anyway!.!.!.!.I do wish all gas caps were on the driver's side for two reasons:
1) convienence
a!. always know where it is regardless of what vehicle I'm driving
b!. closest to the driver, who is usually the one pumping the gass
2) Keeps all traffic at the pumps heading in the same direction (for each pump area)Www@Enter-QA@Com

I actually like it that way: sometimes I park too close to the pump, and then I have to maneuver to be able to open the door (and THAT is embarrassing!)!.
If the gas cap is on the other side, I never have any problems getting out of the driver seat, no matter how close to the curb I am :)Www@Enter-QA@Com

On your gas gauge on the dash, there is a little picture of a gas pump!. Whichever side the hose is on in the picture is the side that the gas cap is on the outside of your car!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

I have no idea!.
It's kinda annoying!.

Answer a user's question!?

I have two cars--each one has the gas cap on a different side!. I'm thinking about dying my hair blond sometimes so people will stop staring at me when I drive around and around the gas pump!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

It's a symbolic way of saying if you're riding shotgun, you're either paying or pumping!.Www@Enter-QA@Com
