At the gas pumps (PRINT OUT YOUR RECEIPTS!!!)
This Email was sent to me by a friend whose cousin is an LA
This is true. It happened To them three weeks ago somewhere in
Pomona on Our way to Pechanga. The pump should have totaled @
$68.00 (and change). When the receipt was printed, And she
checked it was $ 77.00 (and Change).
She Got mad, went inside the store, asked for a calculator And
let them do the math. They refunded her. She told Them that if
they cheat, they had better make it Right. Normally, her
husband would skip printing The receipt. Not her !!
We Saw on the news the other night that this is happening
Brian pumped exactly one gallon of Gas. The price did not
match the cost of one Gallon. It was higher. He went inside
and Complained, got a refund.
There is also a Number on each pump that you can call and
This is a true story, so read it Carefully.
On April 24, 2008, I stopped at a BP Gas station in GA. My
truck's gas gauge was on 1/4 of a tank. I use the mid-grade,
which was priced At $3.71 per gallon. When my tank is at this
Point, it takes somewhere around 14 gallons to fill it Up.
When the pump showed 14 gallons had been Pumped, I began to
slow it down. Then, to my
Surprise, it went to 15, then 16. I even looked
Under my truck to see if it was being spilled. It was
Then It showed 17 gallons on the pump. It stopped at 18
Gallons. This was very strange to me, since my truck Has only
an 18 gallon tank I went on my way a
Little confused, then on the evening news I heard a
Report that 1
Out of 4 gas stations had calibrated their pumps to Show more
gas had been pumped than a person actually Got.
Here Is how to check
A pump To
see if you are getting the right Amount:
Whichever grade you are using, putEXACTLY
10 GALLONS In
your tank, then look at the dollar amount. If The dollar
amount is notEXACTLY
10 times the price of the fuel you have chosen, then
The pumps are rigged.
In My case, as I said, the mid-grade was $3.71 9/10 per
Gallon; my dollar amount for 10 gallons should have
Been $37.19. I wish I had checked the pump
It doesn't matter where you pump gas .please
Check The 10 gallon price .
If you do find a station that is cheating, contact the
And direct your comments to the Commissioner.the info Is on
the gas pumps.
