Gas Stations Face Ban for Rigged Pumps

The Ministry of Science and Technology has identified 33 stations nationwide for fixing their petrol pump meters to cheat customers, and recommended that the Ministry of Industry and Trade ban them from doing business.

33 cheating gas stations in 13 provinces face ban for rigged pumps
The 33 fuel stations were found to have fixed the chips and electronic circuit boards to rig the display on petrol pumps, some of them with a disallowed error margin of 10 percent.
 
The fraud helped the stations to sell less gas than displayed on the pump screen, and pocket the difference.
