It should be an option left, right, or center. Then you could choose location based on your political leanings.
After one year I still pull in wrong at times. Even worst I forget to push the fuel cap release half the time.
You would think that with all the electronics including the tech group it could sense if you were lined up correctly. If not it could call out to you "get on the correct side stupid".
And " You forgot to open the fuel door". It tells me when I am over the speed limit or to get my hands on the wheel, so why not aggravate me some more with this talking car.
I do love it though.

My old Santa Fe was on the left, so after 11 years of pulling up to the pump on the left, it took me a few times to get the TH on the proper side. Now, it is second nature to pull up to the correct side. However, when I have to fill up the wife's car, hers is on the left, so I have to look at the fuel gauge before I make the wrong choice...

Since '96, all my vehicles have had the gas tank opening on the right. That includes several Dodge/Chrysler models and a Chevy Equinox. Before that, I drove a Olds Delta 88 with the pull down license plate. Can't remember if I've ever had a vehicle with the tank on the left. So, the Jeep seems "normal" to me.

I like it on the right when I'm towing my boat as it also fills from the right side. I simply find and empty lane, line up the rear pump with the boat fill up, and the front pump lines up with the TH fill up. First fill the boat with the rear pump, then the TH with the front pump, and the clerk combines them both into one bill - works for me, all in one stop.

It really doesn't matter to me which side the gas filler is on. We also have a Subaru Forester which has the filler on the right side as well, so we're already use to it.

How do the Forester and Cherokee compare? I had a hard time deciding between the two.

I all honesty, my intentions were to get the new Forester or Outback as I have great faith in their boxer engines and they're proven all wheel drive system. We still have an 09 Forester and love the car.

The reason we went with the Cherokee was basically for the comfort level of the seats. I was sadly surprised that the seats in the forester and Outback were extremely stiff. Comfort is our top priority and the Cherokee beat out all of the competition in that category!

I agree. Compared to a 2013 Audi allroad, my Ram, my 2011 Frontier, a 2009 Jetta TDI and 2008 F350, the most recent vehicles I logged a lot of miles in, the Cherokee is pretty Lay-z-boy like. The ex had a 2012 Patriot Latitude 2.0L 5spd with cloth interior. It was pretty supportive in the front seats. Rear seats sucked. I like the Cherokee a little better than the Patriot seats...and of course the interior is 100% better in terms of fit, finish and materials. And compared to my second car I ever owned...an early Ford Tempo...there is no comparison!

The reason we went with the Cherokee was basically for the comfort level of the seats. I was sadly surprised that the seats in the 2015 Forester and Outback were extremely stiff. Comfort is our top priority and the Cherokee beat out all of the competition in that category! We do not do any off-road traveling, so the capabilities of the Jeep vs the Forester never was an issue or something to compare one against the other.
That is interesting. I have driven Subarus for years (since 1979) and was also considering the Outback/Forester. I decided to test drive the Cherokee and both my wife and myself were surprised how car-like it is. We then went to test-drive an outback - my wife sat in the driver's seat, and said "no way". We bought a Latitude, and replaced it with a loaded Limited, due to gearbox problems. As comfortable as the Latitude was (cloth seats) the Limited is even more comfortable. A number of friends have derided my car - its looks and its reliability (my Latitude was downright dangerous). But - a short ride made them jealous....

Looks like I'm not alone regarding the uncomfortable seats in the Subaru's. Very unfortunate as I still think you can't beat their drive-train. It's also amazing how some people prefer stiff seats. To me, if I can't be comfortable, it doesn't make any difference that all of the other attributes in the vehicle are top notch. Just my opinion.
