Why Some Cars Have The Fuel Gate on The Passenger Side?

Why some cars have the fuel gate on the passenger side and not the driver’s side

In fact, in car design, no one confirms whether the driver’s preference is the determining factor however there is a regulation that shows where the fuel gate should be positioned.
As you may have noticed, not all cars have a fuel supply gate on one side. Some have it on the driver’s side and some on the passenger’s side.
And this has a reason!↔
In fact, in car design, no one confirms whether the driver’s preference is the determining factor however there is a regulation that shows where the fuel gate should be positioned. But even this regulation does not actually determine the exact side but only the location, at the end of the vehicle. Engineers are free to place the fuel gate on the side of the car that offers the easiest packaging.
But there is another reason. Imagine what would happen to fuel if all the vehicles had a supply gate on one side? It would be a long queue while 50% of the fuel point would remain unused. This seems to be the main reason why some vehicles have it on one side and some others on the other side, to facilitate their supply.
And since we are discussing the most suitable arm, two fuel gates would be fine, but it is not in the immediate plans because not only is there no place to place them but also the requirements for this are very low. And if you don’t remember the fuel gate arm just look at the small diamond-shaped arrow on the fuel gauge; it marks the arm on which it is located.
