My question is why don’t they keep the filler on the same side for all cars?

Then there would be half as many queues, but they would be twice as long. I’d rather they put it in the centre, then you could go to whichever queue is the shortest.

Didn’t some fords of years gone by have them in the center rear of the car.

But how difficult would it be to have a filler on each side of the car, other than deciding weather to have two arrows or no arrows on the fuel gauge.

I think early 60’s Falcons had it in the centre. The new body shape that came out with the XR in '67 had it on the passenger side.

Anyway if I get to the servo and all the bowsers on the side I want are taken, I go the other side and pull the hose across the roof.

some of the new ones are so short it can’t be done.

“if I get to the servo and all the bowsers on the side I want are taken, I go the other side and pull the hose across the roof.”
Our cars have the filler towards the back, I pull up with the tailgate level with the hose & stretch it around the back.

Reminds me that many years ago there was a bloke at Mallacoota who could stretch his cock down around his balls and had enough length to hold it behind him and piss out backwards.

I thought everyone could do that.:confused:

Original Mini Coopers had twin tanks and fillers (have a snoop on ausmini forum and see the crap some guys have getting new ones mounted) also Jaguar XK120, E type, MK 10, etc

D22. That is where thry sre on all of them

Our Nissan Juke has an arrow for the filler side, and the added feature it starts flashing how many k’s are left when the fuel gets to a low level ( when it has 40 k left ) plus an auto engine stop when the fuel gets even lower

The Tucson has a permanent display of Km left and stops when it runs out of fuel.
On a side note I got an average of 5.8km per 100L on a 300km trip at the weekend, was quite happy with that but I rarely got over 90kph and was in 6th gear most of the time.

One of my work vehicles (Camira?) had that, but if you were going uphill the distance dropped sharply, if you were going down hill it increased. 'twas about as useful as tits on a bull.

It also blanks out at about 80 km and then you have no idea what you have, as a guide it is fine but I never go below half a tank.

I’m pretty sure that every vehicle I’ve ever driven/ridden has that feature. I’ve certainly experienced the auto engine stop on a few occasions.
