Motorists at a handful of petrol stations across Cumbria have been getting LESS fuel than they paid for at the pump.
Have your say
I assume Jan will be taking her evidence to trading standards and we'll see a News and Star article soon about the filling station being prosecuted, somehow I dont think so.Don't believe the computer in the car - they are notorious for being inaccurate and when was it last calibrated? Never?If you're that convinced about being ripped off do something about it apart from posting here.
Say it as many times as you like Alan - it doesn't make you right. It is absolutely down to fluctuating amounts of fuel delivered for the money. My vehicle calculates miles per gallon - there is no fluctuation. It is time for a change in the way we purchase fuel - there should be amethod of seeing the amount we buy. There are crooks out there in case you didn't know!
I'll say it again, differing MPG's are more likely to be due to driving conditions, not the service stations under or over delivering. As most cars are now very efficient even a small difference can make a noticable change to consumption. If you're that concerned contact trading standards with the filing station details.
