I remember a story about one gas station that was using a setup where they could adjust it from the counter, so if the vehicle looked like they were measuring it they would just let it work normally, if they thought they could get away with it they hit the switch would then cheat people on the gas

so even if you got someone out to measure it if they are using that trick they could get away with it, but if you are sure your jeep can't take that much I would report it to the chain management

Yeah, i don't understand that because the only person who got to much gas was the guy who had it spilled all over his bike. The other two were being charged for more gas then what they were getting.
Disregard everything i say

I have a dana 30 front axle and amc 20 rear if anyone is looking. Both are 3.54, drums, narrowtrack.

If there is an issue, don't buy gas there...seems like a simple solution.

If you really want to stir the pot, report it to a local news agency and let them do their own independent investigation. They go ga-ga over this kinda stuff around here. But as a Gas Station Manager, I seriously doubt there is an issue considering they are weights and measure audited at least yearly, in addition to random field audits. I'm also fairly certain a "switch" won't do this either since most pumps require special tools to change the dispensing amount and it's not something any technician can just "do". A lot of places also have alarms on the pumps so third parties can't just open them to tinker either.
