Gas icon

Next time you're in your car take a closer look at the gas icon on your dashboard. Most modern cars use a subtle graphical arrow next to the gas icon. 


The little arrow shows the side of the car that the gas cap is located. In the picture above the gas cap is on the drivers side. 

Car companies can't standardize on a side to put the gas cap but at least they've managed to agree on what icon to use.
