    Where is it on your vehicle? Where do you think it should be?

    It's on the right on my Subaru. My previous car (Acura Legend) had it on the left. Took getting used to having it on the right, but I kinda like it. Leaves more room to get out of the car if need be (NJ is a full service required state, so not as important). But it doesn't bother me that much. The Acura was a little easier to see the pump total in.

    Right side on my Cavalier, left side on the parent's Kizashi which i borrowed some time ago. Gas cap should be on the opposite of the driver's side if you ask me.

    On my Galant its on the Right.

    Now imagine that you fill up planes all day and your hoses are on the left side of a truck, then try and get gas in your car and realize you pulled in the wrong way :(

    Where's the option for 'both' ? 1980's chevy trucks had dual fuel tanks with a fuel door on both sides of the vehicle. Never have to worry about what side the pump is on. :D

    Right side of my 2011 Nissan Sentra. Was on the left of my 2008 Nissan Altima. I like it better on the left actually.

    My old CR-V was on the left, and my 240SX has it on the right, still getting used to that. ._.

    Left on my Altima coupe. I like it that way.
    It was also on the left on my 1993 Camry, so there was no learning curve.

    Drive a Subaru Forester so it is on the right. The reason actually for Subaru to be on the right was due to driver safety or some rubbish like that. The Lexus RX 350 my parents have is on the left and their Saab 9-5 is on the right.
