Petro Canadaselling more gas than car can hold


I filled up my minivan, which has a 75 L tank and has never even topped 70 L at the pump. I managed to get 77.69 L in. I asked at the station about this and they said to take it up with the head office. When I contacted them, they assured me everything was fine. Still am in the process of sorting this out (any resources would be most appreciated) but would not fill up there ever again.

    The regulatory agency that controls the measurement of the pump is Measurement Canada. You may try complaining to them and hope they will send out an officer to do testing on the pump you used. The will need the gas station address and pump number you used.
