On my Volvo V70 it's on the passenger side which is a first in the many cars I've owned. I consistently find myself swinging easily into a pump on the drivers side, just to remember and have to turn around. Is it just me, or do gas stations cater to driver side gas tanks?

I don't think they care where your gas tank is. It could be on the roof for all they care. Now, it might make a difference if they are concerned as to where your gas filler pipe might be, but I doubt it. They build 'em and we come! It's up to us to maneuver our vehicles close enough to the pumps so that our gas caps are as close to the nozzles as we feel is safe and comfortable.

One is on the passenger side and the other is on the driver's side. Thank goodness for the little triangle on the gas gauge indicating which side the fill is on.

driver's side...and...the fuel gauge shows the little emblem on the right side so it is not ALWAYS an accurate description of which side your tank is located on the car.
