That is because Shell is not govt owned Oil Marketing Company, so they don't sell subsidized fuel. What you paid is the actual market price without subsidy

I filled regular diesel yesterday from the IOC COCO @ Koramangla, had been filling diesel from IOC in Vijaya Bank layout for about a month now (my car is a month old i20 Crdi), I must say, after filling up from the COCO and driving my car for about 5+kms I started to feel the difference, the engine clatter reduced and the car was driving much smoother and I could notice the change in the pickup when driving in low gears at around 1500-1800rpm.

Although they tried their antics on me, but, I had my eyes glued to the meter, there diesel seems to be good so far!!

I also have 1 question for the guru's! The density of diesel on the dispenser was reading somewhere arnd 460-470!! Is that okay?

Cheers
Shrey

The density is not being displayed correctly. I think it should be at about 825.
The dispensing pump would also have LED indicator that shows if the density is valid or in-valid. You could check the status of this LED with the displayed density

I've been filling up at Shell Petrol bunk on Varthur road. I feel that this petrol is better than even the one at Shell petrol bunk whitefield.

I used to use BP (near BWSSB water tank - Kasturi Nagar 1st Main road) regularly. No real complaints.

Nowadays go to Shell OMR (near Big Bazaar) for cleaner petrol. Price wise minimal difference.

I fill regular diesel from Sathya Sai Keerthi IOC dealer, JP Nagar 3rd phase from last 3 years. Quality and quantity is good and they always set to 0 before filling even if we do not look at the meter and are prompt guys.

If approaching Sony signal from Madivala, take a left turn at the signal, 500m from there on the left you would find this IOC bunk.

Yes, even I agree with you that COCO employees are not supposed to try any antics and that's the reason all of us here on tbhp are so mad about COCO's but this one bunk is a little different!!

CASHLESS CARD FROM SHELL

Shell have come up with cashless cards which covers lubricants and the C store.

Just came back after a tankful for my bike from DM and sons. Auto cutoff didnt work, luckly the operator guy was there and he turned the machine off. Almost half liter petrol spilled out. He cleaned the entire petrol tank and reduced 50rs from the total bill.

Friend, is this the one on the left side beside the nasty hump when en route from the wipro sarjapur office towards sarjapur circle?

Any other recommendations for a good pump in that locality for diesel? Anywhere near the Wipro Sarjapur ofice. A friend new to this town has settled in Sarjapur and recently brought in his diesel mill (fiat punto active). I alerted him about the tricksters in uniform at the pumps.

This bunk is the one which comes on the left as you proceed from the Wipro HQ on Sarjapur road, towards Sarjapur. This is just after the Sunny Brooks gated community, new Mantri project and beside the new DSR group project.

I've been using the services of this bunk for about 2 years now, for both my Scorpio as well as petrol Ikon. Just be careful for genuine mistakes when paying with the credit card, but otherwise have had no issues with fuel quality or quantity.
