Where’s my Fuel Cap? Interesting Facts About Cars

Interesting Facts About Cars

How many times have I pulled up at a petrol bowser to find that the fuel tank cover is on the otherside?

Plenty. For nearly 40 weeks per year, I’m in someone else’s car other than my own

I write new car reviews for many brands – Mazda, Jeep, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Kia, Hyundai, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and a few others through The Car Guy.

Many years ago, a friend of mine pointed out this feature on her Volkswagen. Now I’ve been in the car industry for a long time – started in 1978 – but I’d never noticed this feature until she pointed it out. I suppose that’s what happens when other people were fuelling cars for me.

And since she told me its removed the pain and personal foolishness of parking on the wrong side

So next time you’re in ‘strange’ car, just check your dashboard – all the information you need is right in front of you

My favourite location for my pictures is at Brighton Park near to the bridges that cross from Brisbane (Brighton) to Redcliffe (Clontarf).

The Houghton Highway, Ted Smout Bridge and what’s left of the Hornibrook Highway are generally included. For the information of those not well versed about Redcliffe, the Hornibrook Highway was constructed from 1932 and opened in 1935. All that remains are the entrance and exit of the bridge – the tollhouses. At the time of completion the Hornibrook Viaduct (as it was called then) was the longest road viaduct, built over water in the Southern Hemisphere. The deck was constructed of ironbark timber sourced from the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

2.5 Million Superfeet of wood were transported down the North Pine and Pine Rivers during contruction.

I’m pleased to say that I was able to salvage some bridge timber from the Hornibrook Highway when it was demolished. I had built the desk and coffee table that I use today. A great memory of a heritage listed infrastructure project thats nearly 100 years old
