Yes, I agree it is probably due to the parts themselves being identical / interchangeable. If they wanted to key things to distinguish left vs. right, they'd need to sell different parts for left and right sensors, and left and right cables, etc. And yes, they'd surely make us pay for the extra cost that comes with that at the cash register.

Pull the fuel relay fuse and start the car it will suck the fuel pressure to near zero.
