Default COCO Petrol Pumps on the Pune-Mumbai drive

What are the good places to fill up in the Pune Mumbai Journey &
also the return journey.

I had noticed that there was a COCO pump (BP) while returning from
Bombay just before you enter Pune.

Any Reliance pumps on the way - how much does the cost differ between
Reliance & other pumps?

The HP Pump at Saswade (Bombay-Pune direction) is the best and cheapest (Diesel Rs 33.95 per litre) en route - this is a COCO. This is teh cheapest fuel anywhere in the State. There is one at Lonavla (Pune-Bombay direction).

There is no Reliance pump in the expressway.

I recently (10 days back) filled at a Reliance pump and they charge Rs.1 more than the market rate.

What is actually COCO pump..? Yes on expressway there is HP just before the exit to lonavla while going to Pune and oppposite side is IOC.

Sad i didnt fill up.. Cos was busy speeding up and already started with tank full.. i guess refuelling to tank full gives better average cos the error ratio reduces

COCO pumps also provide bills that have "COCO" written on them.
