Motorists have revealed that you can go hands-free, saving you energy and giving you enough time to wash your windscreen or even go to into the shop and pay.

Influencer Nadia Adan reveals she even has enough time to do press-ups, jumping jacks, or check her makeup now that she doesn’t have to hold the handle.

The drivers reveal you can hack your automobile fill-up by forcing the lever up by placing the fuel cap from your car in between the lever and the handle.

Drivers waiting on the forecourt might get angry though as they see you multitasking and not think the car is filling up.

“Pumps at half the speed you will be there for half a hour filling up,” said one commenter.

“But at least I won’t damage my nails,” replied Adan.

Another seven-second video by Darren Whannel shows the “life hack” as he fills up his convertible.

“Done this for years, pisses people off that don’t know because they think you’re not doing anything,” says Whannel’s only commenter.

What the drivers have not realised is that there is already a latch on the fuel pump handle which will hold the lever up.

Commenters on Adan’s video picked up on her mishap.

“You do know Nadia if you pull handle on pump and flick that wee silver flap back on handle it will stay pumping,” said one commenter.

“The white tab on the trigger does the same thing,” said another.

“Does it ? send me a vid in ireland doing that Einstein,” replied a disbelieving Adan.

One whizz has also revealed a vital motor part that should be changed regularly – and it’s not what you might expect.

Meanwhile people were stunned to discover a secret button that could save their life on the road – here’s where to find it.

In a video shared to TikTok, one woman revealed the little known “life changing” hack.

And, parents have been urged to remember a life-saving feature in cars to keep their children safe.
