The BPCL outlet on the Old-madras road under the cable-bridge is a state of the art thief.

Asked him to fill my tank-up, he fills 300 Rs worth fuel and shows it keeping the pump nozzle inside the tank. I repeat to him "FULL TANK". Without resetting, he again fills it till the brim.And surprise surprise, he's asking 300 bucks extra claiming he reset the counter. I was PI$$ed.
I wanted to give those guys a good dosage.But, my friend urged me not to be violent in a different state. :(

cauvery outlet at lalbagh west gate, he has been there for years and his fuel is good.

the worst is DG petrol bunk in bsk-III stage ring road (owned by you know who) sells adulterated fuel mixed with kerosene...

I hate Gojer's Petrol Station at cantonment circle... they tend to always fill short.

We have an account with a petrol bunk near RT.agar (Hd.Deve Gowda Road), "Lakshminarayan and sons" I think.

I always fill Premium full tank, Decent mileage.

Tank up on diesel (they have only one grade) at the shell pump on Vittal Mallya road. No problems.
However, here are some bad ones :-
1. Pumps near Byapanhalli Police station (Old Madras Road), IOC outlet in KR Puram and Large outlet near RTO office Indiranagar all use the usual con of 2-3 guys crowding you - cap saar+how much saar and not zeroing the meter properly....so guys take care.
Heres an interesting background story about the Shell pump on Old Madras Road :-
The outlet opened in Sept. 05 and since I use only Shell diesel, was thrilled at the prospect of a outlet nearer home.
Pulled up my Innova and asked for diesel, the attendant pulled the nozzle for unleaded petrol and poked it into the fuel port.
Nearly died of heart failure.
The guy told me that the wrong tank had been filled with diesel, as this was a new outlet and that there was nothing to worry about.
This was amazing for a world class organisation like Shell.
Anyway, this outlet has been closed after operating for only 1-2 weeks.
If it reopens, all you Indiranagar/Old Madras Road guys, better sniff the nozzle (ha ha!) and only than fill up.

I usually tank up normal diesel in Shell bunk on West of chord road or the IOC in St Marks road. I found both to be equally good. Also I always use the auto cut off while refuelling - the IOC bunk seems to fill a little more fuel than the shell. So, IOC might help increase the range a little bit.

I always get down from the car while filling up as it is very easy to cheat. One good thing about Shell is, they specifically tell you to look at the zero mark.

I find that while i am refuelling my bike, there aer many times, i was almost cheated. Especially where some petrol was already filled on one vehicle and the same is continued from there on a different 2 wheeler.

However, on my car, I have never faced such an isue till now.

Here's where i fill up.

1. Bharat Petroleum - Malleswaram 8th Main 19th Cross. Close to my place and fuel quality is also good. Used to supply bad fuel years back when petrol costed ten bucks a liter. Now since a couple of years his fuel quality has drastically inproved.

2. Shell - Lavelle Road - 99% of the time.

3. Shell - Hosur Road - Whenever I am enroute to Chennai.

4. IOC - St. Marks road (India Garage and next to the Ol' British Library Bldg.)

Above list is NOT in order of preference though.

Oops i almost forgot, the BP bunk at Nehru circle (seshadripuram) and IOC at the next junction after nehru circle is also equally good.

IOC pump near Banashankari Temple & Bus Stand is a KSFCSC [State govt] operated bunk. Have found this place to be good. It is open 24 hrs..

Only complaint is that if I go late nights, he says premium fuels are not available.

Absolutely right - good fuel quality and slightly cheaper prices too. Know this as I used to fill bike petrol there during biking days.

But for my car its always - the emphasis on "always" - Shell regular at primarily Mysore Road pump (before BHEL) - closest to my house, else any other Shell I come across (there's 6 in BLR).
