Petrol pump customer drives away with fuel nozzle still in tank in China

This is the shocking moment a petrol pump customer in China drove away with the fuel nozzle still in his tank.

Footage captured in Hohhot City in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on December 22 shows the car refuelling at the petrol station.

After paying the fee, the motorist drove away while the staff had not yet pulled out the pump nozzle, which was accidentally detached from the hose.

The driver paid 1,400 yuan (163 GBP) in damages. He said: ‘This is the most speechless I have ever been.’
