I've decided that my NEXT vehicle should have a fuel door on the right side - both sides would be better.  Out West here where almost everybody pumps their own gas, the lines are always longer for vehicles filling on the left side.  I don't really care if the fuel door is chrome or not.

IMO, chrome fuel door look tacky, and out of place on any car.

No matter what side your fuel door is on, there pump you need is never available.  The Traverse is on the left, my Escape is on the right.

What I found out recently, the hose on the pump is long enough to wrap around to the other side of the vehicle, so I use any pump that is available.  Snug up close to the pump and drag the hose around the back side.  I use one hand to pump, the other hand keeps the hose off the window/paint.

 Ditto
that's what I do at Costco stations, the pump hose extends out to allow fueling on opposite side of pump.
That's the only gas station I ever encounter line ups at, since their fuel is always cheaper.

I would rather wait to fill up than take the chance of scratching the paint.

At my age, I don't know how much time I have to wait.  I'll take a chance on a scratch - It's a tool, not a Picasso!!

Unless the Fuel Door is round (Dodge Challenger), then I'm not a fan of a random square piece of Chrome on the side of a car.
