Have you taken notice that some cars have the gas fill opening on the
driver's side and others have it located on the passenger's side? Either
way, there is only one way you can drive up to the pumps. The pump's
transfer hose must be on the side of the gas fill opening. This is
inconvenient at a busy gas station where your available spot may not fit
your car's configuration. Today's gas pumps have short hoses that cannot
reach around to the opposite side of your car.
A long time ago, some cars were fitted with a central, rear-bumper location
for universal gas fill, under the license plate. That location is
considered unsafe today.
My suggestion is that all cars be fitted with TWO gas fill access, one on
the left rear quarter panel and the other on the right. Then, you could
drive up to a gas pump from either direction and pump gas.
Sure, it will cost a few dollars to add this feature, but so what? The
dozens of added features to cars already cost and nobody's complaining. At
least, this suggestion makes good sense, more sense than many costly
features that do little or nothing for comfort or safety: radio controls on
the steering wheel, for example. Cars now cost 10 times what they used to
within the lifetime of people still in the workforce, so I say, so what if
a two-way gas filler costs an extra $5 or $10 to the auto maker and
translated into $10 or $20 more retail?
