A female motorist took to Twitter to gush about how little she spent to fill her car's petrol tank.
Providing photos to corroborate her story, Twitter user Rakgadi wa Picanto (@RakgadiMmati) revealed that she only spent R372 to fill her ride to the brim.
Briefly.co.za noted that her tweet attracted more than 6 000 likes since being shared on Sunday.
The young lady revealed that she drives a Kia Picanto and it proved to be a big talking point.
While many lauded her for the prudent vehicle choice, others were quick to mock her small vehicle with tiny engine.
Mr Masindi Sir (@Mr_Masindi) couldn't hide his surprise:
"That is a really small tank, I though it was a scooter."
Mzwise Gumbi (@MzwiseDaDJ) said,
"Lol be happy now because next year or before the end of this year you'll be paying almost R20 a litre."
PLATINUM ICE (@DizzyMasango) shared a similar experience:
"This car is a gem, also had an automatic. If I had a chance, I’d buy it again."
Surahfas (@SM75502576) addressed some of the critics in the thread:
"Can the people making fun of the tank and car post their credit scores please?"
