couldnt that technically mean that the mesurer on the pump is a lil bit out...thus charging you more


fuel pumps are out most of the time, but they are int he customers favor 9 times out of 10.
i know most BP sites get thier pumps re-calibrated every 6months to stop em wandering out too much

I think he means, more fuel than the pump registers, so you're undercharged. But I doubt that is the case.
