I see people going over a few cent, but then dont bother lift the hosing so it cancels it out.

If I go over a few cent I make sure to have it on hand in case they ask for it, most places dont though

Shure if ye stop the flow, it stops the meter, yet a good bit continues on flowing out. I always get that little extra bit. It's even better when the gobshite before me didn't, which the rarely do.

I normally fill up with €30 and go a cents over, then I pay with a €50 note so its upto the cashier to decide whether to give me €20 change or €19.98, the other day I accidentally went 17c over, the cashier proceeded to count out €19.83

Yes, that's because when they do that, it's psychological pricing bull****. Costs €10 really but the cent off makes it look like €9 and change.

So if some retailer is doing that pathetic crap, you're damn right I'm going to make sure I get my change ...

Roll your eyes all you want, 100 x 1c a day, over a year is €365, seeing as most stations are open all year round.

Please explain otherwise.
