    petron corp. is 40% owned by the gov't. kaya nga ito yung in-endorse ni PGMA dati when the fuel prices started to rise...dati kasi mas late magtaas ng prices ang petron corp. pero ngayon halos same lang with other companies.

    pinag-uusapan na rin lang, may cartel nga ba talaga ang big-3? pwede ba ngayon kahit deregulated tayo?

    hindi ba tumataas ng 50 cents ang gasoline last sunday? baka dahil dun..

    ako kasi ang gawa pag full tank eh i don't rely on the amount, i always check the number of liters na kinarga, sa petron edsa/pasay road ako madalas pa-gas..

    i post ko rin dito
    if in doubt:
    1. get your proof of purchase (invoice stub, OR, credit card sales receipt)
    2. immediately go back to the gas station
    3. look for the station manager, supervisor or dealer
    4. tell him your concern and ask him to demonstrate a calibration - it involves a 10-liter calibration bucket with seal, 10 liters of fuel dispensed directly from any pump, a representative from the station and you

    gawin nyo yung pag dispense ng 10 liters thrice. dapat nasa zero mark palagi titigil yung level ng fuel sa graduated cylinder ng calibration bucket. nasa zero mark palagi dapat ang level kapag natapos ang pag dispense ng 10 liters of fuel. kung 2 out of three ay nasa tamang level ang inilabas ng isang pump, it means that their pump is still properly calibrated. kung below the zero mark yung level = kulang ang idinidispense ng pump. kung above the zero mark yung level ng 10 liters ng fuel sa calibration bucket = sobra naman ang naikakarga sa customer

    kapag napatunayan nyong kulang ang fuel na inilalabas ng pump ng isang gasoline station ay ipagbigay alam agad sa pinakamalapit na presinto, itawag din sa DTI or sa ahensya ng gobyerno na namamahala nito upang makagawan ng sapat na aksyon/parusa ang sinumang mapapatunayang nagkasala...

    in fairness sa mga gasoline stations, the vehicles' fuel pump is very inaccurate...do a research about it on how it works para magkaroon ng idea

    Revo, 4 days apart lang yung akin hehe... and parehas price i assure you.

    Pag konti lang diff ok lang, pero kung more than half a line ang difference, may anomalya na yan.

    Dati nung naka Corolla pa ako, lagi ako full tank, never hindi... One time sabi ko full tank, aba pag alis ko may mga 1cm gap before the "F" line. Eh usually kung full tank halos lalagpas sa last line ng "F"

    Caltex J.Vargas to dati... And GRABE tumope makina ko pag dun sa station na yun.
