What do they adulterate the petrol (diluted, added other elements) or the pump (to make it seem as if you purchased more volume)?

in old style(where meter is not digital) petrol & pump, both.

In new style, only petrol.

Kerosene.

Indian Government sells Kerosene at subsidised rates for farming use and for domestic use through a chain of fair price shops, and as with everything, many millions of litres of it goes straight to the black market, and that and more from other sources makes its way into petrol dealerships across the country.

Thats the reason there is a lot of comptition when government opens the quota for new petrol pumps.I talked to one petrol pump dealer.He said if he does not adulterate the petrol then he might earn 1/4th to 1/3 than his current income.
