You can save yourself from getting unknowingly looted at petrol stations.

Everyone in India knows how gas stations devise very innovative ideas to fool everyone and make money.

I would like to share an experience where I learnt an awesome life hack to save myself from getting fooled.

Last year, I was riding in an Uber cab. The driver was quite cool and interactive. He then turned towards a petrol station and asked the person there to fill petrol worth of Rs. 501 !

I was a bit suprised and I told “Petrol station hai…. MANDIR nahi ! ” (Its a petrol station, not a temple! )

Once we were out of the petrol station, he told that one of his friends who works at a petrol station shared with him this trick, “If you fill fuel worth of round digit figures, like most of the people do, example Rs50 or 100 or 200 or 500, you will actually get fuel little less than what the amount is for. For example, If you fill worth Rs 200, you will get only petrol worth of Rs 185 or so, which you can't see because the pump shows Rs 200. This is how they loot thousands of rupees from all the customers all round the clock.”

So if you ask him to fill with an odd digit amount (like the Dakshina at a mandir), you can save yourself from getting looted because the pump calculator won’t have the regular even digit numbers to provide less fuel for.

Try it out the next time you fill fuel. It works wonders and your vehicle runs a few extra kilometers
