In general what kind of cars have the gas tank on the drivers side or other side

Always wondered this. Heard something about European cars having it on the passenger side but is that true for every European car manufacturer or even specific car models? And what about Japanese and Korean?

General rule of thumb is opposite side of the muffler

I don't think there is really any convention to it. My Cavalier has it on the passenger side, for example, but that doesn't seem to be "typical" for American vehicles. It doesn't even seem to be typical for Chevrolet either, as my dad's Chevy Venture definitely has it on the driver's side.

No convention other than that, I mean. Though the side of the vehicle the muffler is on could be just as arbitrary.

Driver side. My car has dual exhaust so that kind of negates that.

Semi-related: I'm annoyed it seems like every car on the road has dual exhaust now.

My old Mustang had the gas filler on the passenger side and my TJ is on the drivers side.
