In the US you can get a receipt for anything, how does the filling attendant know whether your purchase is for expenses or otherwise ?
He does not, which is why he asked if the OP wanted a recipt or not!

Re: Gas/petrol Station rip off

I saw this in Bachen-Bülach where there are two rows of pumps and where you pay afterwards at a cabin whilst sitting in the car. A fellow stopped at the first pump in the row, filled up - but not quite, then moved on to the next pump where he competed his filling and gave this last pump number to the attendant in the cabin. There must be plenty of tricks like this.

Thank you. In many US states this info is not shared so freely. I had an

experience several times, in auto damage hit and run. With me able to

grab the plate number, it was difficult to get the owner, either from the

dmv or police. Look sorry, for typing spacing etc, etc. I rarely post on talk

backs, blog sites, or these types of forums. I was I guess on some level

looking for reassurance or a friendly, "that must not feel so good:, something

that working in healthcare I do quite easily. I don't know how long I will drop

in here, but there does seem somewhat of hard edge to some of the

comments posted here and in other threads. And again, I have developed a

rather thick skin working in primary care medicine.

Re: Gas/petrol Station rip off

I fill up the tank quite regularly there and have not faced an issue. Suggest that you just go there and ask to see the video... explain that is must be a mistake as you have paid the cash.

Re: Gas/petrol Station rip off

The letter was for 70 & you only paid 60?

Maybe they missed your payment of 60 because they were looking for a payment of 70?

No 60 + 10. service fee. Included was a register type receipt for the 60. I

would think this is proper when "asking for payment" to include a bill plus

a request for payment, as was done here.

Re: Gas/petrol Station rip off

Bill I hear you, there is nothing worse than being accused of something that would never enter your head...like not paying for your purchases. I hope you find an amicable solution.

Re: Gas/petrol Station rip off

Bill, in my minuscule 2 years in CH, I have found that being polite and completely non-aggressive while taking up such differences with service providers etc. Usually ends in a genuine solution.

You really should go back to the pump and talk it out, as so many here have suggested.
