easier more practical less suspicious way of doing this

use a regular jar.

fill it up a litre

go home and measure it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34137508


I guess if our pumps actually measured in liters then that would be a viable alternative.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16878721


It might actually be possible to find a gallon equivalent to 1 liter.

I've heard rumors of people doing such things. Geniuses and such.

temperature matters too
volumes are generally corrected to 15 degrees Celsius.

If gas temp less than 15 and assume it is metered properly, you will get more gas.

If greater than 15 you get less.

In Canada there is a regulator that tests for octane and quantity. If a pump meters wrong big fine. Octane too.

Did this last week at 5 different gas stations and guess what?

It only filled the 1 "gallon" of gas only filled up 3/4ths of the gallon milk jug.

We are being cheated not only by unexplainable soaring gas prices, but we aren't even getting what we are supposedly paying for.

Fucking bullshit.

Some gas stations in my area seem to cheat on volume. Why couldn't you cheat for the 5 months in between visits of the inspector? Can't you adjust or replace your flow measurement device, take the good one out and put in a bad one, then put the good one back? Or adjust it to run 10% fast, then carefully take that 10% back out before inspection?

Re: Here is a test for you GLPers. Take a empty milk gallon to the gas station and pump one gallon into it.
Could be because containers of any kind often hold more than the prescribed amount when filled to the top. For example, on the red gas can i have, there's a line that says 5 gallons, but its not all the way to the top. So if I actually filled it all the way up, it probably would be more like 5.5 gallons. I don't know where you live but in NY the county checks gas stations for accuracy every few years. I've seen the guy from the county check them before. So unless they bribe him to lie about the results, I don't know

Weight of Water Compared to Weight of Gasoline
At a temperature of 20 oC or 68 oF, a (U.S.) gallon of pure water weighs about 8.34 pounds, whereas a gallon of vehicular gasoline weighs about 6.15 pounds at that temperature.
Diesel weighs about 7.1 pounds per gallon.
Though the question is appears to be about weight, it is actually about density, which is weight per unit volume.
The SI-Unit of density is the kilogram per cubic metre, and expressed in those units, the densities are these:
Water: 998 kg/m3
Gasoline: 720 kg/m3
Diesel: 830 kg/m3
You see this when gasoline and water are put into a glass: because they are immiscible and the density of gasoline is lower, it will stay at the top. (Be careful when doing this as gasoline vapor is explosive and toxic!)

1. How would you know when inspector is coming? Hint: There is no warning of an impending inspection, and it could happen two days in a row.

2. Why would I jepardize a business by risk being caught by inspector cheating? Hint: Gas sales is the convenient part of a convenience store. Profit is almost negligible, and the store depends on items in the store to make any profit what so ever. Selling gas attracts customers to my location, and they hopefully come into the store and buy products to actually help the store turn a profit.

3. I still call bullshit on the whole story.

Re: Here is a test for you GLPers. Take a empty milk gallon to the gas station and pump one gallon into it.
Makes me wonder... I did that once with a 2l coke bottle at a 7/11. I was out of gas and it was all I had. The lady in the store came running out and informed me it was against the law to pump into anything but an approved can. She was like in a panic which I couldn't grasp at the time. Her reaction didn't seem to fit the situation. She made me buy a gerry can inside.

Now I guess I know why.

I've been noticing that fillups at certain stations 'last longer' than at others, my guess is adulteration with alcohols or other lower BTU fuels.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22958406


Different manufactured pumps run at different speeds. Every pump must have a State certificate from the bureau of weights and measurements.
The next time you're at the pump,look for it. The tag has to be visible to the consumer. If the gasoline supplier was diluting gasoline with something other than federally mandated alcohol(hence E85,E10 and so on),they would be idiots,because the fines are so incredibly high,it's not worth it.
I'm sure there are those that try,but you won't find many of them at the Corporate level.They have too much to loose.

Re: Here is a test for you GLPers. Take a empty milk gallon to the gas station and pump one gallon into it.
From Wikipedia:

There is one gallon defined in the imperial system but two (liquid and dry) in the US customary system.

The imperial gallon

The imperial (UK) gallon, defined as 4.54609 litres, is used in some Commonwealth countries and was originally based on the volume of 10 pounds of water at 62 °F (17 °C). (A US liquid gallon of water weighs about 8.34 pounds at the same temperature.) The imperial fluid ounce is defined as 1⁄160 of an imperial gallon.

The US liquid gallon

The US gallon, which is equal to 3.785411784 litres is legally defined as 231 cubic inches.[1][2] There are four quarts in a gallon, two pints in a quart and sixteen fluid ounces in a pint. In order to overcome the effects of expansion and contraction with temperature when using a gallon to specify a quantity of material for purposes of trade, it is common to define the temperature at which the material will occupy the specified volume. For example, for purposes of trade, the volume of petroleum products[3] and alcoholic beverages[4] are both referenced to 60 °F (16 °C).

The US dry gallon

This gallon is one-eighth of a US Winchester bushel of 2150.42 cubic inches, thus it is equal to exactly 268.8025 cubic inches or 4.40488377086 L. The US dry gallon is less commonly used, and is not listed in the relevant statute, which jumps from the dry quart to the peck.[5]

Here is a list of 8 things to look for when trying to identify false flag psychological operations.
1. Staged events usually receive immediate national news coverage
2. There is a political agenda behind the coverage (gun control)
3. The incident inspires intense emotions (Dead kids)
4. Initial media reports conflict eyewitness accounts
5. No dead bodies are shown to the public
6. Celebrities are used to influence the public
7. Presence of mainstream media manipulation tactics
8. The Federal Government give attention to a local story

Question Everything.

When any institution is infiltrated by liberals, that institution no longer serves it's original purpose and instead becomes a social engineering vehicle to push a far left fascist agenda. Liberty and liberals are like oil and water.
