Thanks for the reply Condor. Any idea how they try to cheat, what should I be on the look out for? As in, do they play with the meter, or is it something they do the nozzle lever... any tips would be helpful. I just brought my car here to bangy.

If you are referring to Soubhagya, it's a crappy bunk. Petrol quality is poor. Its owned by a tainted former minister.

I dont know for sure, but its the bunk with the least crowd in HSR. Going by the way it is run and by the people who run it, I very much doubt the quality of diesel too.

I filled there once and I see a slight increase in my FE. But I stay far away from this place.

Has any one used the BPCL near Avalahalli ( KR Puram - Hoskote Road on the right side) ? If yes I would like to know the feedback ?

The IOCL bunk on the Devegowda road on the left side coming from Kabir Ashram is quite decent. Have not faced any difficulties with distraction or overcharging/rounding off etc.

Note: I have filled only petrol from this station, not sure about the diesel quality though.

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.
Good experience here as well. I have filled both the Spark (petrol) and the Figo (diesel) from here without issues. Its also less crowded and the attendants are quick to get things done. And +1 for the dedicated attendant for filling air. I tip him well to make sure he doesn't steal my valve caps.

Went to the BP petrol pump at Ejipura today. Asked them to fill up for 500, and he reset the counter and showed me zero. I told him to go ahead -- that's when he asked whether I would like to fill for 750, I asked him why, and he is like "that's what everyone does". During this time the other guy started filling with counter set at 100. I told him it was for 500. He said OK, and started filling.. and stopped at 405. I asked him why he stopped, and he says he already filled for 100 earlier, and that I don't need ot pay him for the extra 5 rupees as that was his fault

I asked him to print the bill for the earlier 100. He said he can't do that now. So I told him that I would only pay for what the bill shows. He filled for 500 without a word.

I suppose it is a bit too late for you, but posting this here in the hope that it will help someone else on a future date. The HP pump at Marathahalli (between the bridge and market bus stops) was open and serving fuel at 12:30 AM this morning when I was returning home after a movie at Innovative.

I saw 2 new petrol bunks recently opened. One at Agara, where the road bifurcates (one towards silk board and other towards koramangala), on the RHS towards koramangala.
Another bunk opened on ORR near Mahadevpura total on LHS towards KR Puram from Marathalli (just after crossing the railway underpass).
Has anyone used these bunks?

Can anyone suggest a good petrol pump in HSR layout? I usually fill form Soubhagya at the ORR, but read mixed reviews about it here. Is there any COCO pump in HSR layout or nearby towards MG road/koramangala?

Advaith petrol bunk near USHA apartments in Jayanagar 4th Block was good and reliable. Since a week now it claims petrol is out of stock! On checking, was told that the dealership is closed This was situated near and was convenient to resident from this area. Wonder what is the real story behind it!

Hope it opens soon.
