Urban Legend: Do not pump full tank of petrol

If happen some of you read about this mail forwarded by someone

Do not pump full tank of petrol

Many of us are not aware that the petrol kiosk pump has a return pipe-line
(in black). When the petrol tank (in the car) reaches full level, there is a
mechanism to trigger off the pump latch and at the same time a return-valve
is opened (at the top of the station) to allow excess petrol to flow back into
the sump. But the return petrol has already pass through the meter, meaning
you are donating the petrol back to SHELL/ PETRONAS/ CALTEX..........

Don't believe in this, you can get the clarification from here
