On Tuesday evening, a driver of a Ford Focus drove into the Engen Gerhaldo Vulstasie garage in Garsfontein, Pretoria, and asked for a full tank of petrol.
When the time came to pay the R753 owed to the garage, the man drove off.
“This is the second time that this has happened to us this month,” Gerhard Vorster, owner of the garage, told News24.
Vorster said increasing fuel prices were putting motorists in a bind.
