How do they check to see if you have filled the tank on a rental car ?
I had work done on my car and was given a loaner.
I drove it home and back and probably used a ½ TO 1 GALLON AT MOST !!!
You could not possibly "weigh" the car with a "full" tank when I return it and
get an accurate reading in my opinion.
A half gallon of gas weighs about 3 to 4 lbs.
When "filling" a tank, some people top off and I am sure some pumps will pump a
tad more or less when filling. Yes, I know the gov't supposedly inspects them
So there are MANY variables.
The questions are :
1) HOW do they test for a "full" tank ?
2) How much leeway, do they give on a "full" tank ? If I fill up at a CHEAP
station and then drive 15 miles, how do they know ?? There must be some leeway
on the determination of a "full" tank.
