maybe some ats'rs, could run an experiment. i recently payed at the pump with a debit card. while authorizing the gas, if gives you the option
of selecting how much gas you want authorized.
i chose $10. every time you pre select an amount i notice that the pump slows down to a trickle with about 50-80 cents left to pump. and then it
preceeds to automatically pump a ridiculously low rate. it could take as much as minute just to stop the pump and reach your limit.
on this occasion, the pump was pumping so slow, i don't think even gasoline was coming out. i think it was all air. i could hear it, it
sounding like all that was coming out was gasoline vapor. i think i was ripped off a $1.
now it makes me wonder if you are actually getting a full gallon of gas, or are they ripping you off a few litres at the end.
it wouldn't surprise me, unless you actually go to a pump with a scientific container with accurate measurements, you'll never know. maybe
someone can go out a double check this.
the red gallon drums aren't accurate enough. i think all these little rip offs add millions and millions in profit to these greedy crook bastards.
