As car owners we go to these lots, but not all are created equally. Some are laid out better then others.
This is a bad lay out: When it gets busy it spills on to the road, and for cars with gas caps on different sides its impossible when its busy. All cars where I live have gas caps on the drivers side, but that later.
This is a good one: The way the pumps are laid out is perfect. Your gas cap in either side? No problem. You can pull in only.
Like mention previously most gas caps where I live are on the drivers side, mine is on the passenger side. You think that would not be a big deal, BUT IT IS. When gas station #1 is busy & need gas I cause too much of a commotion trying to get gas. I have to pull in the wrong way ruining the flow. At gas station #2 its great, I can pull in w/o causing a commotion. Sure is costs more then #1, but beats having and angry mob of driver sided gas cap wanting to kill me.
Saying all that, gas caps should be all mandated to put one side.
