To day, Friday the guys from TOMZA Gas made a unscheduled stop and wanted to "fill up" my 300.lt. tank.

I checked the gauge and it was 40% full so I said no thanks. Then the guy said let me top it up and I will give you 100 pesos discount.

So I said Ok.

He filled it to 90/95%, then gave me a bill for 2,689 pesos...No No that can not be, check it with your partner...then came back with a bill for 2,389 pesos!!!!...No No how can you put 217 litros amount into a 40% full tank....well the price of gas went up last week!!!!!

After a short but serious discussion the guy final settled for 1,690 pesos

I have never had a service from anyone who has been so blatantly trying to cheat me...Beware.... the names on their card , Oscar, Antonio, Victor

The office telephone number which I tried to call without success is 8000 6060 located in Zapotlane...( What code do I call from my house phone)

I'm sorry you got ripped off but tarring all Mexicans with the same brush is not appropriate. I certainly know many who impeccably honest. If you must be prejudiced, be prejudiced against the assholes in this world... and they come in all races, creeds and colours.

A first step (yes, this is a "woulda, coulda, shoulda") is to ask the price before the goods (whether it be gas, wood, or food) are delivered.
I agree with Ferret:  I've had potential and sometimes successful thievery foisted on me by every nationality.  I've also had some incredibly honest treatment, likewise.
I'd also switch gas companies, just on principle, and I would report your experience to their employer. Sorry to hear it happened. Thumbs down

Actually, lakeside7, in your last sentence on your OP, that is EXACTLY what you did.....tarring all Mexicans and their culture with the same brush.

Yep.

That said, these guys ripped me off about 10 years ago. They are to be avoided.

Oh dear..please show me the exact words "ALL Mexicans"..If by inference that is what YOU want to read into the sentence that is your prerogative

Perhaps the following report may give some credence to my experience since I arrived here in the 90's..not yours mine

[[i]i][b]Mexico is the 138 least corrupt nation out of 175 countries, according to the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index reported by Transparency International. Corruption Rank in Mexico averaged 79 from 1995 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 138 in 2018 and a record low of 32 in 1995[b]

Well actually this isn't "corruption", it is theft and/or fraud.

On a side note, I thought propane tanks should not be filled above 85%. There should be a red warning bar on the gauge...

Too often my tank was filled to 90%. I have never had a problem but now I say 80%, and with solar panels to heat my water, I don't have buy that much gas.

First, aren't you concerned with saying in a public forum that a named person/company tried to cheat you?

I took the advice of another poster, which was to ask the per liter price then ask for a specific price. I said last time, I wanted $2,000. That was it. Little chance for being created there.

Still, it's only a few pesos, so why make an issue?

Sarcasm intended.

Oh, yes. Once you get the bill, you can divide the liters into the amount of $$ you said to put in to make sure it's the price per liter you were quoted.
