That may not be the best way either because if the amount is small enough, a single gallon may not detect it unless you have some sort of graduated cylinder. I recently reported a gas station in my city for that same reason. My gas logs are pretty accurate so are my fill times and distance traveled, therefore when I see a 1 gallon discrepancy where their shouldn't be one, I smell problems.

However I still want to know how its done, the amount of money paid matches the read out of gallons, so how is scam potentially pulled off?
