A heated debate is raging online about whether motorists should move their car between refueling and paying for their fuel.

Official guidelines state that drivers are not allowed to move their cars from tankers until they have paid, unless they use a pay-at-the-pump service.

But many social media users admitted that they regularly brought their vehicle to a designated parking lot of a gas station to speed up waiting times.

& # 39; Move your car! & # 39; one person wrote. & # 39; It greatly speeds up the process and reduces waiting times by around 25 percent.

& # 39; The next car fills all of its tank while the previous user is waiting in line – it's a common courtesy and it's just logical. & # 39;

Another road user said they had also moved their vehicle if there was a line of cars behind them waiting to use the pump.

& # 39; If the line is long, I move my car and pay – if there is only one person behind me, I will pay and I will run back quickly & they said.

But others criticized those who were in favor of moving their car before they started paying because they were impatient.

& # 39; My servo would not have enough parking spaces for each bowser's car to move after filling & # 39 ;, wrote a social media user.

& # 39; It is literally a few minutes of waiting. Try to take a deep breath. & # 39;

Some support the & # 39; fill, pay, move & # 39; method also emphasized that leaving your car at the pump left the servants doubtless that you would pay for your fuel.

& # 39; I used to work in the industry. Do not move your car until you have paid for your fuel. It stops us thinking you're driving away and not paying, & a driver wrote.

& # 39; Pay before moving it, otherwise it is assumed that you are doing a runner, & # 39; another said.

The Motor Trade Association of Western Australia says that drivers are not allowed to leave their vehicle until they have paid their fuel bill.

& # 39; Unless a 'pay at the pump' system or a gas station app is used to pay for fuel, drivers must lock their cars and go to customer service to settle their outstanding payment, "said a association spokesperson.
