they're ripping us off!!!!!!  
we're officially being ripped off at the pump.

we filled up a 60L container at the pump and got charged for 67.03L

That's an extra 7.03L we never actually received but had to pay for!

that means that for every L we buy, we're being charged for 1.117L's - that' might not sound like much until you do things like we do.

we have to purchase 40 000L of petrol to run our farm equipment.

now, we buy this petrol from the same bastards. so...

When we fill our 40 000L container, we're actually being charged for 44 680L

*pause*

that's an extra 4 680L we didn't get!!!!!!!!!!!!!

take note, this is ON TOP of the outrageous price they charge for it in the first place.

we're being short changed on our petrol. i'm pretty sure that's illegal.

Why didn't you say something and ask what was going on??

do you have a choice where you buy from? I can't believe they'd just do that and not expect people to not notice and not complain. Shitty way to treat customers if they expect repeat business at all.

Not to mention if they simply say fill out a form..?! You should complain to some consumer group if you've got one or some sort of complaint show - over here it'd be "Watchdog" who name and shame rip offs, dodgy merchants etc.

well, this is SHELL and they're the only ones who'll deliver up our road. to make matters worse, we ordered the petrol 6months ago when it was cheaper and they refused to deliver until a couple of weeks ago, when the petrol and gone up almost 12c - and they charge at the price of delivery - not purchase.

when we complained they said to us, 'do you want it or not?'

What the Frak?, how can they do that? I don't understand, Why they charging you extra in the first place? Is it not enough they raise the prices???

they're rip off merchants! we knew there was something wrong when our car kept underfilling despite the pump saying we'd purchased more than its holding capacity.

Isn't there that fuelwatch thing? Or complain to the ACCC or something?
