    Strange enough lads.

    Was able to fit 55l in 50l tank and I reported it to manager saying it is outrageous, he just replied it must be something wrong with that specific pump. Stayed on car park there for another 30minjtes and they did nothing with it!
    Hold my beer. 'll show you how to do it :-D

    I know there is some board of measurement kinda things you can report these kinda instances to...but hardly worth the hassle.
    Now if you had a motor for work with receipts from such a shop for months worth of fuel, maybe then lol
    True tho, can't be up to them lol

    I can honestly say them 5 litre cans holds more every time than 5l as I fill them all the time for 2 stroke so it’s worked out 5l per oil shot. No matter what garage I go to. I know there can be rip garages but word gets around fast

    The extra capacity on 5ltr is for vapour/pressure build up, I wouldn't be maxing out those plastic 5 litre drums

    It wouldn't be the first time the pumps have been tampered, you do hear the odd story....now if they true or not is another thing lol

    Near the top of the Gerry can you can see a faint line around it, before it curves up into the handle etc.
