    You use it on your tyre valve caps.... makes them longer and a bit easier to undo/do up.

    The pointy end is actually meant for depressing the valve pin too should you need to deflate your tyres for any reason. but as Kev_A pointed out I too have seen more people use it for moving child locks without getting greasy fingers.

    .. also could be used for operating your smartphone while you're filling up... no-one wants petrol/diesel on their phone after all.

    In nearly 20 years of car ownership, I've always used my fingers without any issue!!

    And just above that, the plastic bit with the half round cut out, is where you put the filler cap when filling up. Saves you from leaving it on the pump and driving away.
