Little-known petrol pump button allows drivers to fill up exact amount of fuel

Filling up on fuel isn't really enjoyable at the moment with petrol prices hitting new highs.

But one thing that most motorists aim for is a certain amount, like £10 or £20 for example.

However when filling up at the pumps, it's likely that sometimes we go over by a penny which makes the transaction all awkward.

Now thanks to a new TikTok video, motorists no longer have to stare at the monitor to see how much they're filling up.

All drivers will be required to do is press a button.

The 23-year-old, known only as Livs, discovered the button when she was filling up her car recently.

She then filmed the discovery and shared it with her followers, where she said: "How did I never know this existed?!

"If you click this button two times ten for £20. It will stop itself at exactly £20. Wow! That's so cool."

The footage shows the petrol pump screen going up before it stops at exactly £20.

Livs also showed a close-up of the preset section on the bottom-right-hand side of the pump.

It features five buttons of different price and litre options with an explanation for how to use them all.

The video has now gone viral with over 2million views with thousands of likes and comments.

One surprised driver wrote: "Always learning," while another motorist posted: "I've never seen this."

A third TikTok user said: "Wait. You mean no more £20.01?"
