£10.01

Why is it when I go to a particular petrol station Texaco I always get charged £10.01 despite very carefully stopping at £10.  When I look at the display it says £10 but when I get to the cash desk it's £10.01.  I think they're adding a penny to everyone's petrol, just imagine how many people fill up with petrol every day and get that extra penny added, it could amount to a hefty profit...

    Yes i agree, when i filled up the other day it added 7p!! A whole 7p!!! Well perhaps 4p of that was my finger slipping – but 3p still lines their large coffers. I won’t name them but it could be an abbreviation of Big Pockets….....

    That makes me suspect that they’re all at it…or is paranoia setting??
