[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]....GAS PUMPS AT GAS STATIONS

Did you know that if you select your preference of gas once and don't press it until your desired choice is selected that the pump will choose the most expensive choice for you. I explain...... I use the  same  brand of gas meaning only that company and I went and payed for my gas. I was multitasking but for sure tapped the 83 button. Proceeded to pump my gas.  I then look at the amount of gallons I got for the price I payed and the math was totally off. I go inside to question the attendant and he stated that I selected the vpower and that is more expensive. I argued but saw that I was not going to get any where so I left. A few days later I needed gas and was at another location and pressed my 83 selection I didn't wait for the 83 slot to be highlighted and the same thing occured. It charged me the highest price. At this point I knew something was up. The  attendant tden told me you have to press your selection several times until the blue marker is lit up and only the amount for your selection is showing. I asked why it was this way and hes aid he didn't know. Dumb question on my part for sure. Now I know.


If you top off your cars tank, which means after it stops pumping when you let the nozzle pump it for you that you add more gas to get it to the nearest dollar amount; you should STOP. Especially on the newer vehicles from 2004 and newer. Your tank has a mechanism that makes the pump stop pumping and it shut a valve or flap to the tank, so any gas that you add after that just sits and when you get gas again the gas that has sat there and collected has condensation goes into your tank and cause issues, My mechanic Dave knew that I did this with out me telling him I did it. He says most people do it so I wouldn't be an exception. Now I know
