Drivers shocked after truth about petrol hack revealed
DRIVERS left in shock after discovering the truth about a petrol hack.
One Reddit user revealed that when you’re filling up your car, there’s no point in holding up the gas pump nozzle to get the last drop out.
The unnamed driver said: “No real secret, but on the nozzle of a gas pump is the fuel cut-off.
“Holding the hose up to ‘get every drop’ is useless.”

Many drivers were shocked to realize they had wasted their time trying to save on gas.
One person said, “God, I’m an idiot.”
Another said: “Oh my god I’ve only ever had one electric car so I didn’t think about it but my partner does.
“I’m going to tell them to stop fooling around now.”
One engine expert said trying to get every last drop of fuel out of a fuel pump nozzle often costs more money.
David James, fuel car expert and sales manager at Right Fuel Card, told the mirror: “Pumps can sense air pressure and stop when they sense the tank is full.
“Any fuel pump after that point is likely to end up on the floor through an overflow pipe, so those few extra clicks will likely only cost you a few extra cents for nothing.
The expert gave some tips to reduce fuel consumption.
He said: “Check if your local supermarket has an offer and if so, shop first to get your money or extra points vouchers.
“It’s also worth looking out for offers with bank accounts. In addition to a bonus for the change, you often get cashback for the tank purchase.
“Fuel expands in warmer weather, so less fits in your tank.
“Don’t regularly run your tank too low or dry as this is likely to cause bigger and more expensive problems with your engine.”
