Shell India limited has asked the gov for a licence to sell fuel in india .. since it has completed investing Rs 2,000 crore *in eligible activities for grant of authorisation .. well i hope Mobil and other fuel companies follow suit.. maybe competition can improve fuel qualities .. something which law enforcement has failed to do.. and we absolutely have the cars .. it wud be so awesome , cars running at the same specs their international counter parts run on

Ohhhhh Im really waiting for this now. This will be excellent cause they have the Capital to introduce better Quality of Fuel and it will be constant rather than stagnant supply. Its been nearly over a month now that I cannot even get 93 Power. I have to run my cars on Power as of now which is really annoying.

yes me too and i've even heard quotes like "speed gives more top end grunt @ higher rpm's while power increases torque" then there was these bunch of enthusiasts who used to fill up a 60% speed and 40%power .. ratio

Well I see comfort.....cause I got a HP Petrol Pump just next door. But I dont mind mixing the Fuels. I think they are more or less the same. There will be hardly any difference.
