Ravi, any updates on the performance of your innova after filling at this bunk?

After a near unanimous verdict, do we still have to discuss this ?

Mods, close thread ?

Makes sense. Noticed the Shell pump in M'lore closed (like Reliance?) this morning :(

tis a shame really; these guys actually could do customer service, unlike other bunks who couldnt even spell it.
On the other hand, Shell may be end up being the wiser one in the long run; crude prices are record high, and government may hike prices again.

I wonder when and how we'll wean ourselves out of dino fuel.

have been loyal to Shell ever since they started operations in Bangalore, one of the cars (Laura) has been on Shell diesel from day-1.

but finally gave up on their prices and filled IOC extra mile diesel this week. The low-rpm pull of the car is negatively affected marginally. I stalled at a couple of places during my daily drive which never happened with Shell and the motor was asking me to slot in to 1st gear where 2nd gear used to be fine with Shell.

No change in mileage though (initial impressions). In any case, no going back to Shell. Miss their service.

Btw, I filled xtra mile diesel at the IOC bunk behind Mallya hospital. I noticed they have integrated billing which is definitely comforting.
