    Except you're never hurting the corporate chain when this sort of thing happens, only the local businessman.

    I would have reported it, I would have gone through the whole day with a pang of guilt in my stomach if I didn't.

    I think I would've too. I probably would have filled up and then felt terrible about it all day. I'd go back and pay him what I actually owed him.

    Depends on if this place is one that plays the game of price gouging in the past. If so? I would have gladly filled up and went on my merry way. If not? I would have said something.

    Re: What would you have done?

    I voted something else.
    I wouldnt have said anything and drove off, but NOT to rip them off, its because I got like a 20 gallon tank. Typically I drive till im almost empty and get $20 worth of gas. I do this probably 9 out of 10 times so I would have only looked at the money and not the gallons.

    By time I figured out I had damn near a full tank or even noticed that I seemed to have extra gas, I would have probably suspected my gas gauge was broke or I filled up some other time and forgot LOL

    with all that nonsense said if I would have noticed I would have definitely told the owner.

    Given that I have walked back into the store because some $.35 object was in the bottom of my cart and got looked over during checkout, I doubt I would take advantage. My concept of fairness always seems to win those types of internal battles.
