i just filled up my fuel tank from shell last week. I can notice a good increase in pick up after the fuel. I have Verna Crdi SX. May be the fuel i filled was adulterous. But there's definitely a change in the pickup. Its not that i was impressed with shell, the service there was excellent. I just didnt expect such a service. They cleaned my windscreen, nice welcome greeting and free air. Good disciplene there. Im much impressed with shell and have decided to fuel only from shell hereafter.

1. You mean adulterated fuel?

2. Air is free is all bunks. What is special about air from Shell petrol pumps?

Air isnt provided free at all pumps, atleast in Bangalore and Hyderabad. You need to pay for it.

With Shell's arrival, there are others who are now beginning to offer air for free.

well - to the best of my knoweldge- it says "FREE AIR" so i am assuming as is free. its just become a habit to "tip" the air filler. but now they demand it.

MAdan, it was supposed to be Free air, as is the norm in other parts of the world. However, the "free" part gets covered, and they demand money for the air.

Ha ha. This weekend I noticed a pump in Andheri east where the "NO Tips" had a couple of paint lines strategically removed to read "10 Tips"

Where did you get this news, and can you provide a link, or is it just a rumour?

So that means, It will only cater to A1 plaza's without diesel & petrol.
I wished, They should have opened these Petrol Bunks even in city.
