Just imagine how bad people are being screwed when an attendant pumps the gas. They short fill you, charge you for the requested amount and pocket the difference. I knew a kid that work at the gas station at the four corners in Washington Mills who did this all the time. Same trick if they checked your oil. They would say you were low and they grab an empty oil bottle and pretend to top it off. They also had two different buckets of windshield wash. If they like you you got the good stuff, if they didn't you got the flavor of the day. I could be just be dirty, pissed in, had soda in it, any number of things.
that is why you look at the pump before you leave. The oil scam is news to me though but I always check my own in the warm bay at the car wash across the street:)

they have been doing this for years at least 7 years that i know of, i suspected it many times and you could tell you were getting screwed over so one day i brought a can with me and after gasing my car up i put the remainder in the can and low and behold i was getting shorted i tried it with 4 different pumps and the last time it happened i stood right there and called the weights and measurments office thats posted on the inspection stamps on the pump and made a complaint and the lady i worked with said they were constantly getting complaints about reillys, so they got theyre pumps shut down for a day and a half and maybe learned a lesson but i doubt it, the way they do it is they make the pumps pause like a hiccup at random and eveytime the pumps do that your getting shorted while filling up my 25 gallon tank in my truck the pumps would hiccup about ten times so at least one gallon they were keeping

If this did really happen, as I think it didn't. Call weights and measures and report them. Just remember you need to leave your name, so be sure about what your saying, before starting trouble.
I am not sure but do not believe the gas stations that are Indian owned falled under the NY state weights and measures...
