Up to 600 euros profit

The one who lives in the Paris region launched his “business” about a week ago when the latter ran out of fuel at work. It was in this context that he had the idea of ​​selling gasoline by filling jerrycans.

Very quickly, the Francilien finds customers who allow him to enrich himself: “ People accepted without saying anything. They were paying. I created a Snap and a flyer “, confides the principal concerned to the information site.

In total, he delivers between 400 and 600 liters of fuel per day and earns up to 600 euros in profit thanks to this scheme. It must be said that the young man does not hesitate to inflate prices to fill his pockets.

Still according to him, his customers pay on average 3 euros per liter of unleaded and 3 euros 50 per liter of gasoil , not including delivery. Through his approach, he aims to ' serve people ».

An illegal trade

Unsurprisingly, reselling gasoline is prohibited in France. This illicit practice can lead to a fine of 3750 euros and a prison sentence of up to six months, recalls Francelive.

Same story for filling jerry cans, bottles and petrol cans. In case of non-compliance, offenders will be awarded a fine of 150 euros.
