Even if they had used the extra fuel, they would have been caught by the FIA mandated fuel flow sensors. So unless they have some sort of setup to circumvent that, then this was truly an miscommunication error that led to this mistake.

I know Ferrari had been accused of having such a system implemented in the past (around Monaco last year IIRC), but an FIA investigation deemed everything was legal. If memory serves correct, the FIA had Ferrari install a second fuel flow sensor to be sure the original one wasnt being bypassed or tricked.
Yeah I know . As for the 2020 FIA regulations , all the teams are obliged to have a second fuel flow sensor .
By this the FIA can read and store the data regarding the fuel flow and consumption during the race , ect...
As for this season , I'm pretty sure there was a lot of cheating by several teams..Too much ups and downs regarding the race pace
