Use the one opposite Manipal instead. Or the HP one just after the Pizza Hut junction on the LHS while going towards domlur.

The Advaith petrol pump in jayanagar is quite reliable, have been filling there since it started. However will all that i am reading on these guys cheat it is better to always step out of the car and keep a watch!

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.
I live in HSR sector 2, can you suggest me good fuel pumps near by? Till now, i have filled once from the pump opp to BDA.

I've been filling up at this bunk for a while now and its good. @Spitfire: I guess you confused the HP bunk with IOC on Airport road.

Ok which is the one after the signal at Pizza Hut? This is a good one. I am bad at names.

The one after the sky-walk is the one I was warning about.

Its pretty good and I believe its a COCO [Company owned]. A better point is that they have an association with iMint as well - So you could get those extra points if you have an iMint card.

This was the first time i heard of such a modus operandi. Didn't know it was a common occurence. I anyway fill till the cutoff kicks in.

Correction: This IndianOil pump is on the Bellary road, before the Hebbal flyover, when coming from airport. It is close to the Godrej Woodsman apartments. These are the coordinates, from google maps: 13.058444,77.593762

Some local news channel (7?) did a sting operation sometimes back by connecting bike tank to a can and filled 1ltr petrol at many stations. Most had less than 1ltr (difference of more than 10%), this clearly shows that manipulating/tampering machines are very common.

I fill regularly at the BP on 27th main next to the HSR police station. No reason to complain till date. I found them much better than the IOC on ring road.

I regularly fill diesel in the IOC bunks next to tafe access and the one opposite to tafe access on st.Marks road. Found them both to be decent. Anyone here faced issues or bad experiences there ?

A few lessons that I've learned over the years while filling fuel, steps from the time i enter the petrol bunk:

1. Open the fuel filler cap and get out of the car. walk towards the attendant.
2. Before they ask anything - Ask 'Do you accept credit cards'. Wait for the reply.
3. Always fill full tank - As the tendency to cheat is less as they would not know how much of fuel is currently present in your car.
4. keep a close eye on the meter - If somebody asks you any question or attempts to distract you only reply to them verbally or using body language but DO NOT take your eyes of the fuel meter.
5. Ensure that fuel filler cap is safely put back on, with reassuring sound of lock in most of the cars

Finally - Try and fill up at the same bunk, repetitive face familiarity can do wonders.

I use all these even today at HP COCO bunk near Bagmane Tech park for close to 3 years now. Although this bunk has been of bad experience to fellow Bhpians, I've managed to what it looks like 'pleasant' experience today.

IOC Bunk near Tindlu village next to the Bhupati Tennis Village is very good. Straight forward and no cheating. I filled up today as well. The guy didnt start filling till I confirmed the Zero on the meter.

And now we have to shell out 71.05 INR for a liter of normal petrol!!! Woe to all Petrol Car owners like me. Cutting down on a number of un-essential trips has greatly increased!!!
