Help Me Establish Gas Station Fraud- By Exposing Fuel Manipulation. Answered
Prelude:Every week I only ever travel the same route, at the same time, with the same amount of traffic on the road.
I fill my cars fuel tank once a week, with $50AU of petrol.
The prices lately have been stable and around $1.30AU/L
What this post is about is the fact that due to me travelling the exact same Km's per week, I have noticed a significant difference between the two petrol stations fuel that I fill at.
Can anyone educate me as to why when I fill at one station I get 8 days of travel and when I fill at the other station I only get 4 days of travel?
Once again I am filling the same amount of fuel at each station, just one stations fuel (Major corporate outlet) seems to be of a much lower quality.
Is it possible that something is a-miss with this situation. Is there a variable im not considering?
After 4 months of weekly refills I feel that conclusively, one stations fuel seems to combust better than the others.
Is this possible and if so are there any home experiments I could try to prove my theory via testing the fuels combustion/quality.
I only write this as I sit here on a week, where I was forced to fill up at the "suspect" station. Im on day 3 now and my fuel is red lining... What is happening?
I know the difference of 3 -8 days is a massive, surely others would have noticed this also. I thought I was mistaken the first few times it happened. But now I am positive, something is wrong.
I might add, I use premium fuel with the same octane level at both stations.
Could that be it? Would they be mis-quoting the octane level in their fuel? That is the only thing I can think of.
