arco1700 W La Palma Anaheim, California United States of America
arco pumps rip you off by 25% Anaheim, California
*Consumer Comment: To paraphrase Arte Johnson
*Consumer Comment: Couple things
Admittedly my gauge is inaccurate so i have to give the car a shake and listed. There was definitely fuel in the tank. Also this is proven by the fact that i drove ( with full power ) into the arco station. As i filled the tank i was shocked to see the meter clime over 10 gallons ( the capacity of the tank is 10 GL ).
Now i also should admit that the tank capacity of my VW and most cars is not accurate, but very close. This fact is irrelevant because i have run the tank dry ( totally empty/ car shut off ) many time in the 40 year life of my VW and the absolute most fuel i have ever been able to squeeze into my 10 gallon tank was 11.2 gallons. Normally if i run dry it will take 10.8 GL.
TODAY AT ARCO in Anaheim (1700 w La Palma ) MY 10 GALLON TANK TOOK 13.983 GALLONS AND NOT A DROP SPILLED FROM THE OVERFLOW VALVE. THAT'S 2.7 GALLONS OVER MAXIMUM CAPACITY. ARCO SAYS IT'S MY PROBLEM........NEVER AGAIN. PS. the staff and especially Victor at that location were very friendly and polite and at least tried to be helpful but, were totally useless! Thanks any way guys. Victor, you rock !
