Got this in my mail box just now. What an interesting discovery!
The Worlds Best Kept Auto Secret.
I have been driving (legally) for over half a century. One would think I
would have noticed the little secret on my dash that was staring me right

Quick question, what side of your car is your gas tank filler cap? If you
are anything like me, you probably can’t remember right away. My solution

you will no longer look like on your way to the gas station, or
put your neck at risk of discomfort or injury.
If you look at your gas gauge, you will see a small icon of a gas pump. The
handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of

right (see photo below). It is that simple!

possible explanation can be that all these people probably don’t even know
Go out and share the world’s best kept auto secret with your friends this
information is way too important to be kept secret.
Update – just checked on my own car. It’s not true!
