In recent years, gas prices have been so high and unpredictable that it has caused many people to struggle when it comes to keeping a budget. If you own a car, gas is an unavoidable cost, but you’ve probably wondered if there are ways to save on the cost of gas.
For decades there has been rumors that there is one simple trick that will get you free gas at the pump and that is using a secret code for free gas. This free gas hack originated back in 1970 when former President Nixon issued the Organized Crime Control Act, which was designed to help secret agents monitor mafiosos without risking their cover. One provision required gas stations in mafia hot spots to implement a mechanical code to grant certain agents access to government-funded gasoline. Some people say those stations still exist and those codes still work.
What You’ll Need to Get Free Gas at the Pump:
- Gas pump
- Secret mechanical code for pumping gas
If you want to try this secret code for free gas, go about your gas station trip as normal. Pull up to the pump and remove the nozzle from the pump. Place the nozzle into your gas tank as normal. This is where the secret mechanical code comes into play.
Instead of keeping your hand on the lever to keep a constant flow of gas pumping, make three short separate pumps. You can do this by simply grasping the lever and quickly letting go, three times. This is the first part of the mechanical code.
Secret Code for Free Gas Step 2: Make Two Long Pumps
Immediately following the three short pumps in step one, you will need to make two long pumps. This time grasp the lever and hold on to it for about a full second or two before letting go. This is the second part of the secret mechanical code for free gas.
Step three is simple: make one short pump. You can follow the instructions in step one for how to make a short pump.
Simply repeat step two and make two long pumps.
Simply repeat step one and make three short pumps. Then continue to pump the rest of your gas as normal.
The entire free gas code is: three short pumps, two long pumps, one short pump, two long pumps, three short pumps.
It’s important to note this free gas code will only give you up to $10 in gas, but you can simply repeat the process a second time for more.
It’s also important to note that in the 1970’s, most gas stations were analog. Today, most are digital, which means this free gas trick will not always work.
