Hope it opens soon.
Are you talking about this one ? This was/is a popular one. I used to tank up there occasionally. Hope it reopens soon.

If there is something that Jayanagar lacks, it's Petrol bunks. Out of curiosity, how many does Jayanagar have ? South end, Madhavan Park, ?

Diesel prices in Shell are ~ 68Rs. I filled at the one in Whitefield Main Road. Not sure why the humongous price difference. I'd gladly pay a 5-7Rs markup but beyond that, I am not sure its worth the trouble. I plan to stick with the HP pump in Sarjapur road after Wipro.

The IOCL one at ORR is what I regularly use, didn't know that it was a COCO one. I read mixed reviews about it, so I tanked up from the HP near BDA this time. let's see how it goes.

BDA one is OK i use it regularly or I use HP petrol pump just before Maharaja Kormangala.
One more is there in 27th main opp menakshi apartments after bata/titan showroom. Looks like petrol is OK but aware of filing less petrol etc by starting meter at 200 etc

http://goo.gl/maps/s6dqQ Is this the IOCL bunk mentioned which is near Mantri Sarovar ? I had read a comment about an IOCL bunk owned by some tainted MLA few pages back and was assuming this was the one. Now its mentioned its COCO, can anyone clarify the same.

Also there is a new HP bunk opened after Marthahalli towards KR puram http://goo.gl/maps/TkDFe anyone filled up from there.

Guys , if you are referring to the IOC pump opposite to Nanda's and on the left hand side of the road when you travel toward Silk board, then i can assure you that its not COCO. The name of the pump is "Soubhagya" .

I have been filling from there from the day i got my car, as i stay very near to the pump.

I never had any issues with them till date.

But this time i filled from the COCO IOC pump near Sony world and i can felt the difference immediately.

So compared to the COCO IOC pump, the quality is surely not upto the mark, but not sure if we can call that bad quality also .
You guys can try that once and see .

Hope it helps .

Cheers

This COCO pump is some 100 meters from Sony world towards NGV right? Just before the pizza hut?

If the talk is about the bunk just before Piza hut, I am their customer for more than 12 years. It's good and never had any issues till date.

Its better to be safe than sorry , so staying alert always helps .

I generally get out of my car to go and stand near my car's fuel tank mouth. That works in keeping the shenanigans away. If the fuel quality is fine (ie, not adulterated) then I am fine with the pump.

Having said that, it is DM & Sons (BPCL across Manipal Hospital) for me for the past several months. Never had any reason to complain.

This may be slightly off topic, so please excuse.

I regularly fill diesel from the HP petrol pump on the old airport road, just before Manipal hospital and have found the fuel to be decent. Whenever I have had to fill diesel from other pumps, i do see a slight difference in the performance and mileage.

The OT question is, do these fuel stations offer car engine oil change too? I know they do it for two wheelers, but do they do it for cars, if yes then have any of you got it done there?

For people in CV Raman nagar or HAL 3rd stage, there is a HP COCO bunk open from 6am to 10pm at the DRDO entrance opposite Bagmane Lake. There is a US Pizza on 1st floor. My experience with staff is good - air always available and am assuming COCO fuel is reliable.

Here is a link on google maps.
