I don't understand why is it important to have an arrow on your dash?

When I was a teenager in the early 1970's, growing up in a rural community in Colorado, I spent some time in the summers working at the local farmers coop, and that included pumping gas for customers who preferred to not pump their own. Some of the old timers got a kick out of bringing in their older cars and watching me search for the fuel cap. I think its the '57 Chevy that fills behind the left taillight. Several old "land yachts" filled behind the rear license plate. Current standardization with "idiot symbols" on the dash is so boring. Oh, and I had a rusted out '71 Super Beetle in grad school, and between a burping gas cap and a dirty spare tire up under the hood, you didn't dare tote anything nice up there.

actually, remembering now, we also had a Volvo 240, and I'm pretty sure that was on the RIGHT side, so Volvo 700/900 were lefties, but Volvo 240's were righties. how confusing. I had a Volvo 850 too, but I don't remember.

In my first car, I had to hold the license plate down to fill the tank. Now? The arrow points left and the pump icon has the hose on the right.

In college I worked pumping gas (yes we pumped it for the customer for no charge, I'm that old....) and it was always fun to figure out where the gas caps were hidden, always interesting. Some of the old ones had them in really odd places.

I bet all these vehicles come with an instruction manual that says the filler is on the side the arrow points to.

Come on Glenn, "Read the Manual"? or RTFM

Isn't that un-American or something?

I am reminded of the computer error message that says, "The problem exists between the chair and the keyboard".
