    Default Shell Petrol Pumps Fraud Method

    Guys , Some of the petrol pumps especially Shell Canal Road (On Feroz Pur Road), and Shell Maulana Shukat Ali Road are doing forgery in this way.

    - You Stop by your car and open up your car tank
    - The Pump Meter is already showing some amount (xyz amount) of previous transaction.
    - You are looking at meter continually to get it on zero ..
    - at exact that time a person (either cashier / or any person knocks your car window)
    - he ask very irrelevant question like :would you like to get your car back screen cleaned also etc:
    - in that time, pump meter is not started with zero and the person starts the meter with previous transaction amount.


    On Maulana Shaukat Ali Road Shell Pump, even person who is not bearing wiper in his hand asks this question to buy time so that they can start meter with previous transaction amount.

    Make sure to check the meter and don't respond to person query knocking at window at the exact time of looking at zero meter.

    Agreed. Shell pump on Maulana Shaukat Ali Road are big time frauds and I make it a point to travel 4kms more and get fuel from Shell Liberty instead of these fraudias. Also in the remote instance that you need fuel and you have no where else to go make sure you get out of the car, stand next to the attendant and make sure he fills petrol on auto otherwise their dubious meters would start fleecing you off

    Some apply the following technique,

    If you're telling them to pour Rs 1000 of petrol, then just after Rs 800 then will start to "STOP and Release, STOP and Release" the trigger of the petrol gun. This makes the meter run faster and less amount of petrol gets trasferred due to the closing of the trigger where as the meter runs on the same pressing instant.
    I experienced this on Shell Model Town Mor

    Is there any pump in Lahore which will allow you to pump your own gas? Last time I was there no one would let me touch the dispenser and insisted that only they were allowed to pump. I'm not too sure about the trigger throttling technique mentioned above actually works in saving them gas as the meter slows down when you release the pressure on the trigger.

    Can't you go out and monitor it?
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    What happened with me once at a PSO, a year or 2 ago, was that I told them to fill in 500 petrol and the guy filled hundred and stopped. I said I wanted 500 and then he filled in 400, but didn't reset the meter.

    The same pump tried the same thing earlier this month but as soon as I saw him stopping the meter early, i got out and stood next to him, needless to say there was no ghapla then

    Happened to me as well on the Shell Canal Road (On Feroz Pur Road). It was one day before Eid in September. i started arguing with the guy and then he said that he made a mistake and he was sorry. i stopped going there after that.

    I agree about the auto thing, but I have yet to find a petrol pump in lahore (or i think in pakistan) that doesnt disturb the pump, i.e. let it fill on auto.

    Best thing to do when u r getting petrol is to get out of the car and stand right next to the meter.

    Pehle he petrol asmaan se batein kar raha hai, and on top of that they dont even fill honestly !

    Awwww such a shame.. Same incident happend with me couple of months ago when I was heading to Multan but it was TOTAL petrol station on Main boulevard Allama Iqbal Town opposite Farooq Hospital.
    I went to fill up my car tank, dispenser meter was at rupees 300/=, I saw that myself the boy who was filling tank said sir your Car fuel lid is little rusty, (my car was 2009) I said its ok and with in 3 sec amount exceeded Rs.500/=. I called manager and lodged complain but he supported his staff rather listening to me. I was intended to take legal action against them but due to my family intervention (leave it, it's just 300 and he is a poor boy) I had to leave that.
    But please be carefull whenever you fill up fuel tanks from above mention Total.
