MANILA, Philippines - When gassing up your vehicle, always demand for a receipt and keep your eyes on the gas meter to really check if the right amount is given to you. This is because a netizen shared her experience wherein a gasoline station tricked her by gassing up only 200 pesos instead of the 500 pesos she asked for.

"10/16 05:51 AM. I decided to gas up P500 from Petron Corporation Nabua. After doing so he confirmed "Mam ok na po 200." (Mukhang mabait naman si kuya)
So I corrected him, "Kuya, 500 po."
He then said he will just gas it up with additional P300. So I paid more attention to my phone thinking he would do what he said. Done, I handed the 500 bill and asked for a receipt (I don't normally do this but this time I did!). He went to the cashier, went back and handed me a receipt which says P300 saying, "Naipit po ung isang resibo, di po namin makuha Ma'm."
Instinctively I checked my gas meter and it looked odd. So I demanded for a receipt that will complete the 500 that I paid for. He went back to the cashier, and back handed me a receipt which now says P500. Still doubtful I thanked Kuya and started to drive away.
2 kms after, still feeling uncomfortable, checked the receipt again and noticed the date for 500 receipt was LAST NIGHT 9PM! Now really pissed, Uturned and drove back. Pulled my windows down I asked the cashier, "MS. ASAN ANG 200 KO?". Sensing the tone that I wasn't in the mood to negotiate, cashier handed me 200 PHP without a question.
They know what they've done and were hoping to get away with it. Trick you with other people's receipt so it would seem they gassed you enough. So no one made eye contact with me. My parting words to Kuya and Cashier: "Wag kayong ganyan ate, wag nyong isangkalan yang dignidad at trabaho nyo sa dalawangdaan."
So always always pay attention to the gas meter while filling up, and ask for receipts. I'm sure this happens in other gasoline stations too."
