South Africa has the best petrol attendants in the world - if they're not brightening up motorists' days with dance, they help out those in need.

On Thursday, a man, Gavin Stone, took to social media to detail how a generous petrol attendant helped him when he needed it most.

Stone explained he had rushed to a meeting in Durban North and on his way back home he realised he had forgotten his wallet at home.

Stone added his vehicle was running low on fuel and the petrol gauge was below the empty mark.

"I found R15 in coins in the vehicle and stopped to grab a litre of diesel," he wrote on Facebook.

Stone stopped at an Engen at base of the M19 westbound and he was helped by an attendant named Welcome.

"Humbly l asked for a whole R15 worth of diesel... He smiled and started filling," he continued.

Briefly.co.za gathered Stone saw the petrol attendant pass the R15 mark on the pump and he was already on R44.

He "sternly" told Welcome that he asked for R15 not R50, but the petrol attendant knew what he was doing.

"He calmly says he is putting R50 in and he will pay the balance," Stone said, adding: "I am blown away by this man's generosity!"

According to Stone, Welcome said he wanted to make sure he got home safe.

"He felt God made him just do it. I am humbled beyond words."

Stone said Welcome will get back more than a 100% on his gift to him.

"I offered data to his phone which he did not expect at all, but accepted," Stone added.

The thankful motorist ended his post by exclaiming his gratitude to Welcome and thanking God for providing when he needed help.

"How incredible is our Lord God Almighty working through his people to perform the unexpected. Today, God supplied my need through Welcome's kind heart."
