ASDA put the decimal point in the wrong place

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-12939234
Asda has admitted drivers paid just 12.9p a litre for petrol after staff put a decimal point in the wrong place.
About 50 motorists stocked up on unleaded fuel at the petrol station in Rooley Lane, Bradford, West Yorkshire, on Thursday

Didn't take them too long to spot that error, bet one member of the Asda team got some earache !

Bet it was done on purpose as a publicity stunt to get ASDA some happy customers. You don't really think a company like ASDA could accidentally do that do you without some system somewhere picking it up?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

One would have thought that " Pay at the Pump" was still visible within the kiosk.
Good luck to the people who got a tankful at about 60p per gallon.

Some of ADSA petrol stations are all pay at the pump with no kiosk. Like the one that P_P have used in Bury St Edmumds.
