I have the same experience. I did not feel any difference with Shell Diesel and I am quite happy with IOC's normal diesel.

Deepak, the bunk near Ramakrishna Nursing Home goes by the name of Mahashakthi Enterprises. It is notorious for supplying wrong quantity and may be quality too.

Recently, one of my colleagues was cheated at this bunk and he noticed that his car returned a low mileage. When he went for a refill again, he told them that he was cheated and got 4 litres of petrol free after he threatened them that he would complain to the police.

Today's update:

Heard from a friend who went to fill yesterday. In Chennai now shell petrol costs Rs.57.xx. Rs.7 more than normal petrol. Diesel costs Rs.48.xx. Rs. 12 more than normal diesel elsewhere.

Cool tried and tested

i am very particular in gaining maximum fuel economy while i drive my i10 everyday to office and back ... from day1 i used Shell Premium and tank full to tank full i drive about 450 to 480kms (31 to 33ltr) ...
but once shell wasnt available and became pricey .. i shifted to HP power from a company owned petrol bunk ... now i get 510 to 525 (31 to 33ltr)..

from then on i have stuck with filling tank to tank every time from the same station ...

==============================
Although i take care of other things - every month check tyre pressure, drive in early hours to gain colder air benefit and also clear traffic ... accelerate properly with optimum use of brakes .. and although i drive till 80kph max sometimes, normally i am around 60kph in 5th ...

Thanks, I think it is the same pump that benny was talking about sometime back, the pump which he has shifted to from Shell.

Default HPCL Fuel Quality

I have a NHC since 2004 and I fill unleaded petrol. I have noticed that the Car gives a better average when I fill the fuel from HPCL pumps. The average drops marginally when I tank up from BPCL and IOC Pumps.

I have never filled any Premium petrol as that was discouraged from Honda Workshop. Has any of you also experienced similar experience.

i can just tell you that all depends on the quality of the fuel station and not the brand of the fuel as far as you fill regular fuel and not premium fuel. may be the BPCL and IOC pumps are private owned and adulteration is taking place and HPCL is company owned or owned by an ethical private operator.
personally i always prefer filling fuel at company owned petrol pump.

I always prefer HPCL for my NHC. Part of it has to do with ICICI credit card which exempts tax on fuel at HP pumps.

Yes I too agree with the same !! it all depends on the fuel station and I personally have seen my Jeep giving problems with adulterated fuel at HPCL pump.

For a long time I was brimming up at a company owned Reliance pump trust me I had really good experience !!

try out shell pumps. you will find them good. somehow Relaince pumps didnt flourish as they were supposed to be. many people found quality issues in relaince fuel.
