I don't know when companies started doing this, but doesn't the little arrow next to the gas symbol tell you what side it's on?

Some cars don’t have a gas arrow. Instead, the picture of the gas pump itself is on the side where the tank is.

Our '98 Lincoln has that, so Ford at least has done so for a while.

What bugs me though, is having to remember which side it's on since my cars are opposite.
The Focus, and most cars now days, have an arrow next to the gauge pointing to the side that the fuel door is on. Whenever I'm driving an unfamiliar car and pulling into a gas station, I'm very relieved to see the arrow.

I have to rely on the arrow at work because Ford can't standardize where the gas door is on their cars.

I had no idea that's what that arrow meant! I thought it was just pointing to the guage "This is your fuel meter"
