Focusing on zeroing in the machine at the petrol pump will not help. People have to pay special attention to two more things, only then they can avoid petrol diesel theft and fraud.
Oil theft at petrol pumps has become common. Petrol pump attendants steal petrol and diesel in front of customers and recover full amount. In such a situation, the Consumer Affairs Department of the Central Government has posted a post on Twitter to make people aware under its Jago Grahak Jago Abhiyan. This post tries to convince people through caricatures that focusing only on zero in the machine at the petrol pump will not work. People have to pay special attention to two more things, only then they can avoid oil theft and fraud. Let’s go into detail about those tips, which can save us and you from falling prey to fraud…
Before filling petrol and diesel keep these things in mind – meter reading should be 0.00. The verification certificate of the dispensing machine should be displayed. If customers wish, they can check the quantity delivered using the 5 liter scale available at the petrol pump. When filling petrol, definitely check zero. Many petrol pump attendants do not display oil prices correctly to steal oil. If the meter shows zero, it means that the correct amount of petrol is going into the vehicle, but this is not necessarily the case every time. To cheat, the operative plays the jump trick in the machine. To catch this, see if the money goes straight from zero to 5 rupees, it means that the trick has been used. If you catch this trick, you will avoid being scammed.
Take special care while filling petrol and diesel
