Only if you pump full tank, no airlines pump that much unless it's needed for the flight. Extra fuel = extra weight.

as well as cause heavy landing, resulting in hot brakes, which will be very dangerous.

yes they can, but whether is it possible to be undetected for 22hrs is another story.

They only pump just nice petrol. Once plane is out of original course of flight, they need to land midway to pump.
