Some say that putting the filler cap on the passenger side is safer. Two vehicles hitting sideswipping each other on the road could cause damage to the fillers and a potential fire. Putting fillers on the passenger side places them towards the outside of the road, and lessening the probability of damage in some accident scenarios.
