This is what happens when petrol prices are through the roof.

A hilarious video of a driver pumping petrol in Malaysia has surfaced on Facebook.

In the video, the driver of a black car was pumping petrol at a gas station.

After filling his tank, the driver starts to drive away, failing to realise that the nozzle of the petrol dispenser is still tightly attached to his vehicle.

This results in a rather embarrassing moment as the driver experiences some resistance – without knowing why.

The driver’s attempts to leave the station with the nozzle attached almost uprooted the entire gas pump.

The hose that connects the car to the gas pump eventually gives way and detaches from the machine, allowing the driver to finally drive off.

SG petrol price hike

The entire country recently observed a substantial price increase in petrol after the Ukraine crisis.

On Monday morning, Shell raised its price of 95-octane fuel by eight cents to $3.06 per litre. Other companies soon followed, with Esso at $3.04, Caltex at $2.98, Sinopec at $2.95 and SPC at $2.87.

With the prices of oil soaring in Asia to USD$130.50 a barrel, observers predict that the costs of 95-octane across other brands will hit $3 by the end of the month.

A diagram by Petrol Watch Singapore’s Facebook page highlights the most recent petrol prices at the moment.

Netizens’ reactions

Posted with the caption ‘Fuel prices in Malaysia so cheap he want to take the whole thing home’, many netizens found themselves relating to the driver after the recent petrol price hike.

Maybe he's trying to squeeze out those last few drops? 🤣

Some netizens called out the person filming the entire situation for not reminding the poor clueless driver.

Other netizens suspect that the driver might have been trying to scam the station and avoid paying for the fuel.

Nevertheless, with Malaysia reopening its borders on April 1, many local drivers are looking forward to getting to refuel their tanks for less (and possibly 'da bao' their own petrol pumps as well).

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con

    We (try to) identify all 14 vehicles involved in the massive chain collision on the PIE

    Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather.  The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters bei

    Transcab taxi VS Audi A6: A clash of egos on the expressway

    Transcab taxi drivers are notorious for their driving behaviour among the various taxi companies.  It is an impression that the public has developed over time, which I couldn't agree more. Here's why: Warning: This video contains excessive flashing lights. If you have photosensitive epilepsy, please do not watch the video What Happened?
