Is this the one at JC nagar? Before Ulsoor?

The BP pump on Kasturba Road (with the attached Mc Donalds, after JDB on the left) is pretty decent.
I have filled in fuel 4-5 times and could see that they were not upto any tricks. The attendant sets the machine to the desired amount, starts the fuel filling and walks away, which shows there is no interference. Also no irritating guys asking windshield, cash/card etc.
I have been getting consistent mileage, similar to Shell. Do try it out.

Ulsoor ?

Guess there's some confusion here. I am refering to the BP bunk adjacent to Hotel Tom's & Fathima Bakery near Shoolay circle.

Do all BP bunks offer Octane 97?

I know for sure that one near the Residency road-Brigade road junction and the one in Sadashivnagar do offer. Was specifically interested in the North Bangalore part. Thanks!

Oh Ok. I was referring to the BP on Promenade/Wheeler road in Frazer town. Is that a Coco?

IOC in HSR Layout.
HP on Koramangala 80 feet road near Manipal Cure and Care
HP on Hosur Road near St Johns turn-off

All these three are good in my opinion - Ive not had any issues on either quality nor quantity.

I occasionally use the HP in HSR Layout near the BDA and where that new flyover is coming up, only when I am re-entering HSR Layout from the Agara side. So far no serious complaints per se but I am yet to get used to them somehow.

They are located a little inconveniently at the moment on account of the road works going on and many people break the rule by coming along on the wrong side of the road divider when trying to go there to fill up.

@Shankar, I am not so sure that the HP bunk near St John's is that good. Likely reason for the good treatment that you get is - you ! I dont think they would want to mess with some like you, and when you are driving a vehicle that you do !

Jokes apart, I was not happy with that bunk, and IIRC some complaints are there about that one.

Is this pump reliable ?

+1. I too have heard complaints about this one. The ones which I usually fill fuel [Diesel] are the ones below.

1. Advaith BP petrol pump [Udupi junction, BTM] - Good one, but not the BEST

2. The IOC pump after BTM water tank [before the flyover] - Its a COCO and I used to be a regular there. Very good and best part is its 24x7.

3. The HP bunk in Old Airport road near the HAL [ISRO?] signal. This is also a COCO and its very good. The only reason I shifted from IOC to this one is because I use my ICICI credit card and I get iMint points from this pump.

Heard of a new trick that was tried on one of my colleagues early in the morning.
She asked for 1000/- rupees of petrol. She was outside the car when the attendant was filling the car with a sharp eye on the meter. Suddenly the attendant tried to block her view but not before she could spot another attendant behind the pump do something with the pump and the meter jumped straight from 750/- to 1000/-
She of course scolded them big time and asked to see the manager. Being 6:30 in the morning, they said the manager was not there.Thanks to her attentiveness, she escaped getting duped.
And when she asked (shouted, actually) for the receipt from the pump, it showed 750/- in black and white!

This is the first time i am hearing of such cheating! So i thought i will alert others as well.

The pump is on Bellary road, between Hebbal and Mekhri circle. Its an IndianOil pump. I'll get the name today and post it here later.

Till then, be aware. Other pumps may also be using the same tricks!

Aren't the pump manufacturers and oil companies aware of the ways a pump can be manipulated? Why are such incidents so common?

I mean, I'm sure the oil companies wouldn't want to cheat as although they might make few bucks on some people, once a reputation is built, they'll be out of business.

I feel we should contact a manufacturer or an oil company to informally/formally show us how a pump is safe-guarded (much like a member did with Shell). Through such interaction, they'll know the ground reality and we can rest assured that cheating is minimal or know where we can be cheated.

Of course, this is all in an ideal world!

Never been duped. Was a regular there, but now shifted loyalties to the HP near HSR BDA.
