Indian Oil
Old Madras Road, Near RTO Office Indiranagar
I have been using this bunk for last 8 years and never have come across the stupid tricks the attendants try to short fill.

My normal routine is get out of the car stand near the nozzle and they tell me to check zero then the nozzle is opened and they go away till the auto cut off kicks in and I tell them to top up and the payment is done.

In this bunk i have seen a lot of lady attendants and i hope they are honest than the men working in most of the bunks.

Appreciate your effort, but would caution anyone seeing the list that the thread is running from 2005 and the situations would have changed. For instance, the below pumps are used regularly by myself and I did not have any bad experiences till now. In fact, I would rate them great, in terms of quality of fuel and their service. I have seen good reports about them in this thread.

IOC bunk next to Salarpuria Soft Zone, Outer Ring Rd, Bellandur
IOC bunk at Agara (beside the BMTC depot)

Swifnfurious: Yes, its the same near ISRO/ NAL signal on HAL airport road. When I moved in to that area couple of years back had gone there once. Dispenser guys tried the mileage/ cash / card trick on me without sucess. Couple of my friends too had the same experience. Had stoped going to that bunk till they made it COCO around a year back. However now (since a month or so) its back to old management, guess the COCO contract expired or something. Hence didnt remove it from the 'Avoidable' list.

Bejoy: Yes agree on your point of view, the HP pump on HAL airport road which I just said in paragraph above is a perfect example of the same. Hence I just put bunks about which I didnt see any complaints in the forums. Remember reading mixed comments about IOC bunk near Bellandur, one member had said he was short filled and when he pointed it out situation got a bit violent and he had to back out. However remember another member replying to the same post saying service he faced was great.

I was a regular there till last year & it was a COCO. Unless there is a drastic change in the last 1 year, I would rate this ONE OF THE BEST in Bangalore. The fuel quality is/was SUPERB & there was absolutely NO fraud during the time I used to go there. As I said, NOT sure if something bad happened after Mar' 2011.

You have pretty much voted down every pump on the Old Airport Road between Marathahalli and Diamond District :-(

The HP one near Manipal I thought is a COCO?

The IOCL pumps are atrocious, I agree - one of them once even did not return my credit card (had to get it blocked and get a replacement).

From your list, the only pumps that are convenient for me are the BP ones near Manipal and in JB Nagar. Ah well...

I will assume all Shell pumps fall in the "Good" category.

I too stay in that area, wind tunnel road to be exact. Infact the reason I went through the whole thread was after couple of not so good experience with multiple bunks in Marthahalli- Domlur area.

HP near Manipal was COCO for around a year till last month. Had some bad experience with them before it was made COCO,didnt put them in 'Good' list since they no more COCO.

Yes, towards this side there are only two shell pumps I am aware of, one on Varathur road and another in Vigyan Nagar - Basavanagar route. Both those along with other shell pumps are rated high by members.

I know both these, plus two more:

1. On the road through Brookefield, a little distance before you reach Gopalan school.

2. A bit beyond Phoenix mall on Whitefield road in Mahadevapura (towards ORR).

It was pathetic prior to becoming COCO. Our scorpio had fuel related issues after filling there.

>>>

1. As my car was running low (DTE 170 kms) and coming to terms with Bangalore's traffic conditions, I filled up at the HP pump Mats Fuel Park on Graphite Road/ITPL Main Road/Whitefield Road ( three names for one road - whew!) for an amount of Rs 500/- to last me for in-city driving.

2. I made it a point to refuel at the BPCL pump opp. Manipal Hospital today, for my drive back to Bombay tomorrow.

3. I think I will tank up again tomorrow at a Shell pump in Whitefield which I've seen in Google Maps on the 2nd Road/Graphite Road/Whitefield Road.

4. Next fuel stop - Konduskar's, approximately 626 kms from start.

Regards

For those of you who are looking for information on Shell petrol pumps, found this link to the Shell site on pg 104 of the Shell fuel price discussion thread. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...hread-104.html

It also has fuel pricing so that is useful. Prices are a bit higher than the PSU's but I guess that is the cost we have to pay for peace of mind.

I just had the worst experience today at the IOC COCO pump at Koramangala Sony World. The attendant managed to put in 45.92 litres of diesel in my Punto(capacity 45lts), he managed 7.5 lts after cut off. Using the trip meter calculation the top up should have been at 40.5 maximum. Please beware of the pump if you are in Koramangala.

I have complained on their website, waiting to see what happens.
