I'd go and tell the clerk about the problem.....you pay for a certain amount of gas, you pump only that amount.....it would look like theft if you pumped more....that'* just me.

It would be nice to stick it back to them once in a while. $4/gal for premium gas?? Forget that.

I'd tell them, no question. You guys do realize that "sticking it to them" is only hurting the station owners, right? They aren't making money off gas. Its pennies of profit to them. Its not going to hurt the big name companies at all. Gas stations make so little profit, it would shock you.

Heck, $4 for premium is nothing. In NY, we are almost paying that for regular. I just put $20 in the truck at $3.91/gal. Some stations are right at $3.99 for 87. Premium is in the $4.30'*, diesel is $4.35ish.

i just dumped $70 in my car at $3.90 myself. the gas station i go to is owned by the local rack so no, i would not have a problem filling up every car i have ever driven in at that pump. lol

I wish our gas prices in Canada were under $4 per gallon. I use high octane (no ethanol)
and it was $1.53 per liter x 3.78 = a whopping $5.78 per US gallon.
$100+ to fill Buick normally.
There is a POLL above- Please Don't Forget to Vote! he he..
