VC12, my experience with System G is good. I've started using it for the past 3 to 4 months with Shell normal, and the most recent refill with IOC normal. I found the car to be a bit more silent and smooth. On mileage, I never got less than 11.5 in Hyd, and previously,before using System G, I used to get 10.5 to 11. I'm not sure if the increase is due to System G or due to the car's mileage improving after 3rd service.

The fuel quality is very good and now cutoff is working .

I use HP Normal petrol and i am getting better mileage from my spark compared to shell super.
From my experience between HP, BP, IOC and Shell - i think Shell Normal was best and next is HP normal.

Any other good fuel station in Maratahalli?

It is a fuel additive used in Ford and Oprta cars. It costs Rs 250 per bottle, and you need to put 1 ml of the additive for every litre of petrol. That means if you top up your car with 20 litres of petrol, you need to put 20 ml of System G. The bottle has space at the top where you can squeeze in 10 ml at a time.

djay99, Thanks for the update.
I didn't try any other place in Martahalli. Heard that IOC Martahalli is bad.
Most of the times I use IOC Old Madras Raod(near to BDA Complex), fuel quality and service is good.

Fuel quality at HP station near forum - next to Mphasis is very good. I used to fill at this station when i was staying near forum as shell pump was very far.
IOC next to forum comes second in that area. Some time they used to clean wind shield for free .

Hi guys, I am new to Shell experience. Can someone please tell me the current brand Shell Super Unleaded is equivalent to normal petrol or premium petrol? I use M800 (Carburetter) and filling at Shell hasn't exactly shot the FE of my car to a great extent.

Higher octane petrol is useless if your engine is not tuned to make use of it.
