Reach the pump at the gas station and park your car with the side of your gas tank facing adjacent to the pump. You should also park the car otherwise but that will require you to make sure that the length of the pipe of the gas pump is enough to cater to your needs. It is recommended that you save the hassle for yourself by parking adjacent to the gas pump.

Pump mostly have instructions stated on them that you need to follow with immense care. You will be asked to choose the form of your payment and then you can detach the gas filler and insert it in your gas tank. Not to forget that you take the gas cap off before inserting the nozzle. Pull the lever of the nozzle as long as it catches the gas.

Stay outside your car until the gas has been filled up and the pump is detached from your gas tank because the static electricity that is caused in the progress can result in fire. Don’t jerk the nozzle if it doesn’t come off at the first attempt; do it slowly.
