I hope this isn't too political in nature for PD.

I just wanted to warn everyone of some shenanigans going on at the Pendleton Pike location BP gas station.

Apparently, they're applying 0.10 to the pump before you even pump any gas.

I'm pretty sure this is illegal, and we plan to notify somebody about it. Until then, be careful when you go to pump your gas, especially there.

I've noted that type activity for years and always thought it was a scam. But they always said they were allowed to charge for the fuel in the hose at start-up.

Do I look stoopid?




Here's your sign.

They've always told me that the pumps have to be "primed". I highly doubt that is true.

Every cent counts to these guys anymore...

Oh thats not legal.... I've run a Gas Station before and that ain't any where NEAR legal.

They Do charge for the gas in the hose... they charge whoever pumped it before you.

Oh well.

No freaking kidding. So basically they make .20 off of .10 of gas. .10 times however gas ups.

They could be making hundreds off of it.
