Re: Petrol Station Rip Off
Chris (156) My gut feeling is that the petrol station measurements are unlikely to be wrong, I think that they are stringently checked regularly by the local Weights and Measures people, it would be a foolish filling station that tried a deliberate rip off, wouldn't last long.
We all know the accuracy of our Alfa fuel gauges and who knows that the figure quoted for tank capacity is that accurate either ? Of course the ambient temperatures at the time of fill up have an effect also. A lot of people in hot climates never fill to the brim as they know that when the temperatures rise the fuel will expand.
Just my thoughts, I'm not saying that they are correct !
