    If you stopped at a gas station, and you found a line of people filling up, As in a very long line, and come to find it was such a long line because the pumps were malfunctioning and giving out more gas than you were paying for, as in half of the advertized price.

    I get to say yes, because I once got nearly 35 gallons of diesel for just over $3. I offered to pay what I thought it was, but we settled on $20.

    There you have it. I'm not as bad a person as I seem. :busted:

    The profit that the gas companies make has nothing to do with the station selling the gas itself.

    Gas stations don't have a 100% markup like bike shops. They actually see little profit per gallon and make the money on volume, unlike the large oil company supplying the gas.

    I would let the owner know he was losing his ass.

    Unfortunatly, the Oil companies, in this case, would have already made there money. Leaving the station owner with a loss.





    With that said, earlier tonight, I noticed that when I filled My shadow up, I asked for ten bucks of gas, should give me just over 3 gallons. My tank was defenetly able to take at least three gallons, I was on reserve for about 20ish miles. After I filled up, I looked at the pump, read 1.32 gallons. Went inside, told the attendant, found it was the owner, she checked out her system, found a problem. Gave me My gas for letting her know, and gave me a couple free monsters. She offered me another tank of gas next time I stopped in, but I wasnt worried ab out it.

    Damn it, I wish I was that lucky I spend $90 on diesel yesterday and I wasn't even empty. . . :disgust:

    I'd fill up and leave but then call from the road to let them know they were getting bent over the barrel

    i would probably fill up...then maybe mention something to the owner...gas mark up for the gas station is very low...the grocery store i work at, we sell gas...and most of the time we are either breaking even, or making a few cents per gallon, especially when the price goes up

    :stupid: Sorry, they dont have an im with him smiley. But I totally agree, if It was an oil company selling it directly, fill up, do some drag races and fill up again. But the individual companies I think are normally franchise (or whatever) and have individual owners so I would have to say tell the owners

    I would tell the station attendant...and why do people always try to justify ripping someone or some company off because "they can afford it"?....I just don't get that....D
