A recent Roads.sg video of two men using super unorthodox techniques to fill up a gas tank has caught the attention of many Singaporeans.
At the time of writing this article, the post has since garnered over 100 comments (I’ll share some at the end of this article) which are pretty one-sided.
Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it. If you have, watch it again. It' bloody hilarious!

According to the Roads.sg video description, this incident occurred across the causeway.

The owner of what we believe to be a 2016 Toyota Vios, is definitely a Singaporean. I can say this with assurance because I've pumped petrol in J.B. before and you only ever see Singaporeans do stupid shit like this while Malaysians laugh at us.
Do you save money in the end?
If you're not too familiar with what is going on, the logic is simple. Bubbles are formed when you pump petrol in your car and these bubbles take up precious space in your fuel tank that could go to more fuel. Therefore, if you shake your car, the bubbles will dissipate, allowing you to get more petrol and more savings.
Alright, you might save a couple of bucks, but the repercussions don't make sense to me.
Not worth it
You will eventually wreck your rear suspension which is not cheap to repair.
You look like an idiot
You give Singaporeans a bad name
You will kena caught on video like this guy and, everyone will know you for the wrong reasons
What the people say
The answer is nothing. You saved nothing.
Pretty sure he is.
