    Take a look in your handbook, there is a picture of it there (and even instructions on how to use it!)
    It is so that you can remove the tyre valve covers without getting your hands/ fingers dirty

    The 'tang' end is a tyre tread depth indicator too. But I have found that if you snap the tang off, the resulting piece is ideal for hands free fuel filling, as it nicely fits into the fuel pump dispenser very effectively holding the trigger 'on'

    You can also use the tang end to operate the child locks on the back doors.
