Is this the one called as Mats Fuel Park? One with a Pizza outlet attached to it?

I use to find SHELL petrol bunk in whitefield a good place to refill but now they have shot up their rates and the difference is close to 4Rs.
Nishan...
I have been a regular at this pump for normal diesel and have not noticed any drop in fuel efficiency. I used to fill up at Shell on Varthur Road till recently when the price difference was low, but now a days i have been filling at this pump.

@Cooltronics , is that the outlet called 'Max fuels' you are referring to. If so, i have also heard bad reviews about them from couple of my colleagues .

Do let me know if you find a good one around Mhalli , i regularly fill from the Shell at Varthur road, but this price diff makes me think about other options.

Have been a regular at Shell pumps, but the recent price hike has made me look for other options.

Any trusted pumps in Koramangala ? How is the Indian Oil pump opposite Passport Office ?

Any pumps which have automated billing like Shell ?

Rohan, have you tried the HP petrol Pump on shinivagilu Main Road(i.e., near old Maharaja restaurant,after Bon South)

I have filled many times there, but no sure if they are OK or not. Also, last time i filled Shell, the engine felt really smooth, less noise too. But since price difference is now nearly 4 rs, planning to shift to HP premium. Is it ok on the engine? Heard that we are not supposed to put premium petrol.

I regularly fill at Divya Fuel Point, i.e., HP petrol pump next to Brand Factory@ Marathahalli on Old airport Road. Any opinions on this station?

iPai - My answer is AVOID IT. I have been staying in Maratha Halli from the last 6 years and this is THE WORST bumk around. I fill it from Shell varthur and one of my friend says Matts near cosmos is good. Not sure though. Guys, any review on Matts?

Most of the times I go to Shell at Vitthal Malyya road. I also have good satisfaction at Indian Oil located at St. Marks road. At Shell we can have peace of mind but now the fuel costs more there, looks like no subsidy.

Personally i have had a good experience here, however, several others have had reported bad incidents.

I have not tried the HP pump near Maharaja restaurant. Is it a company owned company operated one ?

There are many threads on use of premium fuels. Different people have different opinions on this. Some feel that they get better pick up with premium fuel. Some feel that premium fuel is less likely to be adulterated. Some feel that premium fuels are useless, they don't provide any extra benefit.

I feel its better to stick with normal petrol because it is cheaper and recommended by car company. If you feel like spending extra, use some additive like system G with normal petrol.

If not Shell, I fill here. Have witnessed a drop of 1km per lt in bike when compared to what I get with Shell normal. But otherwise I have found this bunk to be decent. I get the similar mileage with Matt/Max HP bunk next to Cosmos.

@ Kap: I think its called MATS fuel pump. We have diverse opinon related to this pump but I have constantly noticed that the fuel guage is a notch down as compared to when I fill from SHELL and its clearly seen in the drop of Mileage.
My car needs a refill and m yet to find a decent pump ;-)
I've heard the one opp to Manipal Hospital is good and also Shankar & Sons in JeevanBhima Nagar

Hello,

How is the Indian Oil Petrol Pump near Bellandur on ORR, next to ICICI Bank. Please provide feedback. I am looking for a company owned and company operated Indian Oil Petrol Pump around Marathalli Area or any one nearest to MA=aratahalli.

See the post here. Do not assume that all COCO pumps are good.
