A few days ago, a local man went to his neighborhood 76 gas station to fill up his 5 gallon gas can after his lawn mower ran out of gas. To his surprise, the gas pump stated that he had put in over 7 gallons. After talking to the gas station manager, he also called the police. Later, he repeated his test at three other gas stations, and two of them also showed higher amounts than what his gas can could hold. Only one station was accurate at 4.982 gallons. True, hot weather does cause gas to expand, but the police suspect that the gas station pumps are not calibrated, and that consumers are being gouged.
