Drop a Dime, Get Paid by ACODECO

Cars & TransportationThe Director of Panama's Consumer Protection Authority, Pedro Meilan, said whistle blowers who denounce irregularities in the sale of fuel will be rewarded with 25% of the fine imposed. Meilan said the measure is designed to motivate people from the public to lodge complaints when they find something wrong, and to eliminate fraud. He added that the process will protect the identity of the complainant. (Panama America)

Editor's Comment: The fuel capacity on my Jeep is 22 gallons. The listed fuel capacity is 20.2 gallons, but when it's bone dry I can put in 22 gallons, filling it right up to the brim. I've never been able to put more than 22 gallons in the tank, ever. One day I pulled up to a gas station and was running on fumes. I told the attendant to fill it up, and watched as the gallons poured in. The attendant made a comment like "she's thirsty" because it was taking a lot of fuel. I told him "it will stop before 22 gallons, that's the max." However it kept going, up to almost 24 gallons. Of course I knew their pumps were not calibrated, and I told the manager that either I drive away with a free tank of gas, or I sit there while we call the police, the ACODECO, the media, and whoever else I could think of. He said "have a nice day."
