Driver BLOWN AWAY to learn proper use for slot on his car – changing the way he fills up at petrol station

World News

A DRIVER has gone viral on TikTok after sharing a discovery he made with the fuel cap of his car that blew him away.

Justin, who posts under the username @milltj01, created the video afterfinding his 'life hack' – and it turns out not many others knew about it either.


His life changing discovery had really been right in front of him the whole time.

It turns out Justin simply learnt about a handy slot on the fuel door where you can conveniently hang the cap when filling up at the petrol station.

In the clip, he shows himself removing the fuel cap from his car, as if he was going to fill it up with petrol.

He then points to a 'slot' on the fuel door and hangs the cap on it.

A voiceover says: "38 years on this earth and I just learned this."

He captioned his post: "How did I not know this?"

TikTok is well known to be a source of life hacks and hidden gems often pop up.

His video went viral, being watched more than one million times and garnering over 44,000 likes.

Justin wasn't alone in his discovery with others confessing they hadn't known about this before, with one user replying: "51 years on this earth and I just learned this."

Another said: "I'll be back in a second, I have to check something."

The popularity of his clip meant it caught the attention of fellow TikTok user @aketton, who has over 64,000 followers.

He made his own video, in which he goes out to his car to check whether he can also do this.

"No I'm not having that," he says as he approaches the vehicle.

"Oh my days," he proclaims as he realises he also has a slot for his fuel cap.

Ketts then proceeds to try the same thing out on a different car, in this case there isn't a slot, but the door has a small hook on it to hang the fuel cap off of.

He adds: "How did I not know that? I normally just let it dangle and knock about like that."
