Most all of the cars I've owned the gas tank filler is on the driver side, which makes the most sense to me. What do you think?

Should be on the drivers side. But I keep buying cars with it on the right side though.

Doesn't matter. I've had them on the cowl, on the front fender flank, under tail lights, under license plates, left side, right side.
As long as you remember where it is.

driver's side is easier
passenger side is safer as far as fewer fires (after a collision; more collisions happen on the left rear fender than the right rear fender)

most pumps in my state now have longer fuel hoses so it doesn't really matter anyways

DS does makes more sense though
