Ever felt that your LPG cylinder was running out of gas too fast? Did you ever suspect your dealer or delivery-man of stealing your LPG and delivering reduced quantity of the gas? 

This video proves that your doubts were pretty on-the-mark. This is qu
ite an old trick actually – a metal pipe is used to connect the openings of two cylinders – one empty and one full. The pressure of the gas inside the filled cylinder pushes the gas into the empty cylinder. This simple scam is responsible for crores of rupees worth of losses to the consumers every year. 

Now the important question is how to avoid getting robbed? It’s really simple. Buy a good quality weighing scale and weight the Gas Cylinder at the time of delivery. Domestic cylinders will have their tare or empty weight printed in black in bold letters. The total weight of the filled cylinder should be the tare weight plus 14.2 kg.
