So you actually paid?
Yes, this is a Petrol Station not a frekking Restaurant  ;)

 
Well....I'm ficked if I would. I'd have the police round before they did and screamed blue murder.
Well this is London dont forget, trying to get the Police out for a Serious Crime is near impossible let alone a potential miss reading Petrol Pump, would have been in for long wasted wait. If I had driven off and refused to pay then I probably would have got a Knock on the Door at some point and it certainly wouldnt have gone in my favor.

I had a couple of Chats with them now and its already on the Cards that I will get something Back and potentially a In Store Bonus Voucher or Something.  :)

For future reference with Sainsburys, as Ive now found out, the Peeps to talk to are the Customer Experience Managers, there the ones that listen and get things moving.  :y

Wel lIm 150 miles in now and its still showing Full Tank on the Gauge.  :o

What do you reckon if it did overfill, problem at my end or there Pump.

I was under the impression its regulated on presure at the Pump and therefore should cut off around the 80% full mark.  :-\

It's not a Police issue. You should get local Trading Standards involved, as it's their responsibility. And they take poorly calibrated equipment in petrol stations very seriously. After all, if they can't measure it correctly, how can you be taxed correctly? :)

No idea LD, its a 2005 Corsa 1.2 Dual Fuel, yea I know you hate them but its the later Injection type, runs really well if Im honest. I,ll try and have look tomorrow, Donut Tank.

Ive a funny suspession it also slapped the full amount in as well, as a 150 miles would normally be showing half a Tank by now

I wanted to ensure I that I had my facts right Lizzie before rattling cages, ie, has the Pump done my out of a few quid or has it actually over delivered, which should become apparent on my next Fill this week.  :-\

Trading Standards would or could be an option, if, Sainburys didnt play ball, but in all fairness, although a bit slow to pick up on it, they do seem to be on the case, no doubt the full story and the outcome will reveal its self in a few days time.  ;)

So outcome is the Pump did over fill my Tank, the normal MPG I got and the extra Range I got now proves this, I have filled up twice (brimed) at other Garages and Im getting the normal Fills, around 37 litres to Fill, around 80% of Tank Capacity, so I can confirm it was a Pump issue and not my end.

Im surprised it didnt piss out or Vent wben it overfilled me, but the word alarming springs to mind.

Surely the lpg liquifies as it is put under pressure in the tank, and  as the capacity of the tank is measured in litres which in this case is 45 litres  how could you possibly fit 57 litres in there as you cannot compress liquid?? Or am I missing something here?  Of course I believe what happened to you..  I got 100 litres in my senators 100 litre tank once!

With your latest post I assume now Sainsbury's are going to do something for you? Believe me no retailer relishes an encounter with Trading Standards, so no doubt as it is such a leading company as Sainsbury's they will do more than give you the due refund ;)

I do wonder though how many other motorists who have filled up at this pump were also over charged ::) :o

Yea, still struggling to get my head around that one,  :-\, maybe there's a margin for error or safety, but an extra 12 Litres?,  ???

Temperature does affect volume, but whether it would to the tune of 25% :-\
