    If you snap the thin end 'tang' off, it makes the perfect fit to hold the trigger of the fuel nozzle pump so you don't have to squeeze it all the time. Just pull the trigger and place between the trigger and the guard.

    If you have a spare you can use one as a fag holder while you watch the car filling up
