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?

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

It depends on the car, before pulling into a gas station I always look at the gas gauge to see what side of the car I need to have near the pump.
