    Friend of mine works at an Israeli company which produce gas station equipments. They have contracts all around the world. When they negotiate a contract with Mexico, the mexican insist that they allow them to rig the meter. The company refuse to sell the equipments. Nobody around the world had such a demand.

      Hi Meir,
      That makes perfect sense.

      The gasoline pump’s circuit boards are the part that are rigged, to allow the franchise owner to change the programming of the board to deliver ‘short liters‘ at all volumes, except for the volumes around the standard amounts used by inspectors to check~test the accuracy of the pumps.

      In Mexico, the auditors~inspectors use standard 20L containers to verify that the pump is working properly. If the franchise owner is smart, he adjusts the gasoline pump’s circuit board programs to deliver exactly 20L … and 40L … and amounts~volumes close to those 2 standard~test quantities … but the other amounts pumped by the same ‘modified’ gasoline pumps are all shorted by 2% – 10% (or more if the franchise owner is stupid~greedy).

      As USA & California gasoline station owners found, they can short-pump 2% -3% for decades, and the customers cannot tell the difference that they are being robbed.
