Is It Legal For Fueling Stations To Charge 50naira For Using Jerricans? by RubiesBanking: 7:13pm On Aug 24
I just stopped near one of the fuelling stations around my area to buy fuel, and I noticed this issue of fuelling stations deducting 50 naira on the basis that they're not meant to sell fuel to customers using kegs.
Is it legal what they're doing? And it's almost in every single fuelling station they do this sort of thing.
The worst thing about this is if you argue it out with them, they will just take the fuel they sold for you and sell it to another customer whose ready to pay.

This is why they can't stop charging the N50.

Which state Is this?
They once tried it with me at one petrol station in gwarimpa, in Abuja. I just put the keg in my boot, paid for the petrol I bought and zoomed off. I don't have time for nonsense.
That's a ploy for attendants to make extra money.

Lagos state to be precise around Ogba. Even the customers that are meant to be supporting you against this illegal charge will be mocking you because they think the money is too small.

The money is not an issue but for the fact they claim what they're doing is legal. Even the new fuelling stations that just got opened around the area didn't take long before they started joining them.
