Or people were waiting as you can see on the bottom left of the picture. I've done this When the lines were incredibly long, as filling on the right side is shorter.

I swear the little arrow on the gas meter is one of the biggest mysteries of modern times.

Anybody else have seen too many videos of people driving off with the pump nozzle still in your gas tank? I'm 99.9% confident I wouldn't ever be so absent minded, but I've seen enough of those videos to always glance in the rearview mirror to make sure its put back before I drive coffee

Most gas stations have long hoses so you can go on either side with no problems smile

Not that I'm aware of, but the next best thing was the old cars in the 70s and 80s which you flipped the licence plate down and the filler was right there in the middle of the trunk.

Back in the day they were behind the centrally located license plate. That worked great.

I sometimes take it, but that's because there's a line at all the other pumps and it probably has the shortest line. I wouldn't take it if all the other pumps were free.

Sorta like using the handicapped stall in the bathroom.
