Over the weekend my wife and I were shopping at Lowes for lawn and garden equipment to set our yard up for success this summer.

We grabbed a new hose, a new sprinkler system, solar walk path lights, and a few other miscellaneous items for our yard. When we were done shopping we stopped at the Sam's Club nearby to put gas in the car and noticed there was a bit of a line, which was fine. It was sunny and a Saturday afternoon, so it makes sense that there were plenty of people out running errands.

While my wife and I were waiting our turn to fill up with gas, we noticed the woman in front of us get out of her car, walk around both sides of the back, jump back in her car, pull forward, and turn the car around so it was now facing us.

It appears that she forgot which side of the car her gas tank was on!

We've all been there. You might know this life hack already and have used it when you fill up your car with gas but for those who don't know about this, it's an absolute game changer.

Always Know Which Side Your Gas Tank Is On

You might already be aware of this but if you aren't, this is one of the best lifehacks you will learn today. On your dashboard, your car will remind you which side your gas tank is on with this little arrow. Every modern car comes with this arrow, so unless you're driving an old or classic vehicle, you'll always have this helpful reminder.

I have been driving the same car for almost 6 years and every once in a while, my brain stops working and I forget which side I need to park to fill up with gas. My wife's car and my car have tanks on different sides and for some reason, I'll forget which car is which from time to time. Thankfully, I can always just look down at this arrow, call myself a moron for forgetting, and park accordingly anytime I'm putting gas in either car.
