Default Careful...

Even I have personally faced this problem many times what others like shyamhegde & murugaveln faced. Many petrol pumps are playing this game now. We have to be careful with these guys or go to some reliable pumps like Shell, Reliance....

Dont look at the "Rupees" counter look at the fuel disbursed counter.

If the meter jumps to 200 (thats what it does), the ltr counter in the meter will show some vague figure like 0.01 0.02 etc. You can show them that and get the fuel filled again with no payment.

And dont forget to lodge an online complaint with your agncy i.e. IOC, IBP etc. Thats a must and not just walking away to another one.

In Pune I rate thye folowing as good:
1. Mashobagate HPCL Pump
2. BPCL Pump at Gynashwar Paduka Chowk
3. Kulkarni Petrol Pump at the entrance of Laxmi Road.
4. IOCL Pump at Maldhakka.

The bad ones are:

Well today i got a full tank done at an IBP (factory ) outlet, as you people suggested i was looking keen at both counters(liters and rupees); seems like intially rupees zipped faster than litres counter- by the time it was some thing like 2.x ltrs , rupees counter crossed 200 ,but gradually they both caught up with each other. Finally it was Rs.769.90 for 15.78ltrs at 48.79 per ltr. Doing some maths the quantity is genuine i feel.
Probably company owned bunks don't cheat .

is there a link that you are aware of to lodge an online complaint. I did post few of the links to the vigilance department of BP.

Arrow

For Indian Oil corporation

Goto Indian Oil Corporation :: Home

On the same page, look to your right, under "Talk to us"

Select "Suggestions & Comments" and hit the arrows ">", it will bring up another page with a form to lodge your complaint.

Under Area of suggestion/comment, select "Others". Do not forget to include the name/address of the dealer.

Do provide your correct name/ phone number / email address as they will contact you after few days with the resolution.

I had made a complaint and the owner was called and spoken to by the Area Sales manager. An attendent lost his job and supervisor warned.

The Sales manager gave me his mobile number just incase I face similar situation again.

Please Remember to send a complaint and only then can we make a difference, shying away lets the dealer operate unchecked.
