Could they be using up driver's-side-fill tanks left over from earlier trucks? (Probably not.)

Mine's on the passenger side but it has a home-made wooden flatbed.

A 47.1 we did 30 years ago with driver side filler neck. Neck and tank were rusted so we made a new tank and used a straight filler neck but the frame mount brackets were a reverse image of factory passenger side mounts and hole in the bed was factory looking. Might be something to the export idea.
