Odd location of the fuel tank well visible in an Argentinian GMT400 Chevrolet Silverado

In contrast to the USDM GMT400 Silverado, which had a saddle-mounted fuel tank and left-hand filler cap in the front quarter of the pick-up box as a standard fitment, the Argentinian and Brazilian ones had a right-hand filler cap in the rear quarter. In order to save on tooling and reuse much of the parts for the previous generation of the C/K trucks which had already been made in Brazil and Argentina, the tank in the rear overhang was much easier to implement.
