    Coya said that in the three year period between Uruguay rounds II and III an estimated 1.5 to 2bn dollars will have been invested and that once the third round gets moving ”those investments will increase“.

    Can't you buy Uruguay 3 times over for 2 billion? There's nothing there apart from mate cups and street dogs.

    Given the lamentable customer service and the complete disdain for the company itself exhibited by everybody who works for ANCAP at the grass roots level, all I can say about this peacock's claims is this:

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha in your fucking dreams you twat.

    ”Selected lametable costumer (SIC) service, Chris.”

    Now I have proof that either you will put up with probably the worst customer service that I have experienced OR you have never bought fuel or gas from ANCAP. Use your “free energy” do you?

    Given you only visit here I suspect the former.

    And yes, of course it’s personal, that is what personal service, which I pay for within the price, is all about. Don’t you even understand that?

    The service is not as personal as the treatment, it would seem... ;)

    @ 5 “Free energy” Stevie

    The “treatment” is to never use them again, I use Petrobras and they understand the term customer and only employ people who can relate to customers.

    I use a number of Petrobras stations around where I live and when I go to MVD and back and I am pleased to confirm there is not a bad one among them.

    I can also confirm I have never found an ANCAP with any of the attributes that Petrobras has in abundance.

    But heh, I am only the customer, the person that helps to pay the deadheads at ANCAP their wages, or NOT, now.

    Tactical move by ANCAP. I'd do the same.

    Poor Petrobras employees...

    @ 7 “Free energy” Stevie

    ANCAP wouldn’t know what “tactical” means.

    And you are wrong again, my local Petrobras guys (there are two stations I call local) treat me very well indeed and always talk to me about my moto, whether I am riding it at the time or not and it has nothing to do with the $100 tips I give them for putting my gas bottles in the boot or washing the front and back windows on my car.

    Now off you go with another typical snide remark.
