Consumer protection alert, the Delta service station at 1064 Avenue C, off West 51st Street was recently found to be stealing your money. They were charging a higher price for what consumerists thought was a higher octane gas when in fact they were getting a lesser octane gas. Owner Irfan Hassan was charging anywhere from 10 to 30 cents higher for the supposed higher octane gas. Judge Frank Carpenter III in Bayonne Municipal Court dropped a $10K fine and $300 in court costs on Irfan Hassan, allowing him to pay the fine in installments but allowing his station to remain open.
It's simple, do not buy gas there. Times are hard enough without worrying the local business owner is stealing you blind. There is simply zero reason to buy gas or anything else from the Delta service station owned by Hassan. Also, this isn't the first time a Delta gas station in Bayonne has been hit with fraudulent pricing charges. Earlier this year, the Delta station at 248 Avenue C, between West Eighth and West Ninth streets, was fined a combined $2,100 for two state code violations.
Maybe it's time to simply stop doing business with Delta stations in Bayonne until they learn to respect their customers. Also, a tip of the JCD cap to the state Weights and Measures office, clearly doing their jobs here.
