We had to return our rental car with the fuel registering about the same as when we had collected it, usual practice.
I reckoned we required about €20 worth so we stopped at the large Eko (?) garage which sits just to the side of the main road that runs between Stalis and Hersonissos, right by Star Beach waterpark.
I asked the attendent for €20 worth, he duly put the pump into the fuel filler and started the job. I had my back to the pump so didn't observe the dials moving, he finished filling us up, took the money and flatly refused to give me a receipt. I asked him for one twice but he wouldn't budge, all he said was " very busy" which was crap as we were the only car on the forecourt.
We drove away, certain that he had pocketed the cash and then noticed that the fuel gauge hadn't altered. At €1,85 per litre, €20 worth is about 11 litres and in our small Peugeot 206, that should have registered on the gauge. I even pulled over onto flat ground and waited for a few seconds but the gauge didn't alter.
So, he had seemingly started the pump, but had pumped no petrol, no doubt banking on me not turning around to look at the pump dial, then pocketed the cash without any offer of a receipt.
So, look out if you stop for fuel here, the guy involved is very dark, with a bushy moustache, possibly not a local Greek. Watch the dial and make sure you get the fuel you pay for.
