Stomper Sunny alerted Stomp to a video of a man pumping petrol into his car at a kiosk, which has been circulating on WhatsApp.

In the video, a man in blue could be seen periodically sitting down on his car and shaking, before returning to pump petrol into his vehicle.

The man repeated the sequence several times, while several people could be heard commenting in the background.

A female’s voice first voiced out:

“Does it really make that much of a difference?

She was joined by another man who asked about the man’s odd tactics.

Lastly, a deeper voice belonging to another man joined in, who slammed the man for being cheapskate.

According to Sunny who was an kiosk operator for over 20 years, the man in the video appeared to be shaking the vehicle and weighing it down to allow air to escape the gas tank. 

Doing so would allow more petrol to go in, said Sunny.

He added:

“The man also pumped in his petrol bit by bit so the meter would move slower.

“I've caught several motorists doing this before. 

“I scolded them and told them not to do it again.”

It is unclear when the incident happened, although Sunny said many of his friends confirmed that the video was taken in Malaysia.
