We know that everyone wants to get the most out of their gasoline dollar - and the last thing you want to worry about is whether you're being charged extra because of malfunctioning equipment.
We've had a few questions about our gas pump calibration recently and I thought it might be helpful to share a little bit about Petro-Canada's fuel dispensing equipment and how it's maintained throughout the year. System checks are not exactly glamorous, but it matters to us - and to you - that everything is working properly!
Measurement Canada regulations* require that our fuel dispensing equipment be inspected and calibrated a minimum of every two years; Petro-Canada conducts our inspection annually. We have a stringent fuel dispenser maintenance program in place to make sure that all of our equipment is trouble-free. And outside of our yearly inspections, we count on our certified and manufacturer-trained technicians for any additional up-to-date reporting.
If and when a discrepancy is identified - either by a site operator, a technician or a customer - the pump is immediately shut down until it can be re-calibrated.
Any other questions about pump calibration? Let us know in the comments!
