A drive off is a fueling station term for a customer who drives away without paying for the product.
A drive off is also when the customer drives away with a gas nozzle still in the tank.
The drive-off’s handling is also up to the gas station’s policy. Ordinarily, a person driving away from a gas pump with the hose still attached to the vehicle handles the damage done caused by their negligence. The pump’s damage will be covered under the driver’s policy liability section. Through the usual claims process, the insurance will assess the damages.
The gas station must file a claim with the driver’s auto insurance company or its own insurance company. The insurance provider will review it, evaluate the adverse impact, and settle after the request is reported. The procedure for claims is the same as every other damage inquiry.
