SAVE the right amount of gas in your car is even more important when prices are at record levels.
But any driver knows how difficult it is to try to stop the fuel from flowing at the right time.
Doing it wrong can cost you.
If you only have a certain amount of cash in the bank or in your wallet, you can’t put more gasoline in your tank than predicted.
But getting the dial to stop at the right time takes some skill.
It’s easy to exceed the mark and end up spending more than you want.
That’s especially the case now that drivers are paying more £1.40 a liter for fuel.
Luckily, there’s a simple trick that can ensure you’re always getting the right amount.
A little-known button on the fuel pump will help you fill your car with exactly how much you want, but it’s often overlooked by motorists.
There is a setting on the front fuel pump that will allow you to set a limit on how much gas goes into your car when you fill it up.
If you are at a pump with a keypad, you need to press a key to enter the amount you want to fill.
You can choose how much or how many liters you want to put in your car.
Then just fill out as usual, safe in the knowledge that you won’t accidentally overspend.
What limits you can set, and how it works will vary depending on how far in advance.
For example, according to the Shell website, you can set a limit on using the Pay at Pump option from £15 or more until the tank is full at its previous points.
Elsewhere, you can spend less.
