A full tank of UNLEADED petrol at 76.05/litre. Where is this going?? Yikes!

All in all.. a wonderful experience at Shell Pump on Hosur Road near GB Palya.

Except I think my windscreen has got some swirl marks after the attendant cleaned with the spray n swipe. I hope it's really not a swirl and just a soap stain. Fingers crossed.

Should be couple of weeks that you filled fuel here. May be you are not aware that our Oil companies raised petrol price last week.

No it wasn't a couple of weeks back, it was just last weekend or max thursday or friday.
I am aware of the price hike. In fact i went on to ask the Shell guy about the same and he said that it was only for PSUs and their price remained unaffected.

Filled Petrol from Indian Oil and HP in a month and my car starts coughing up with horrible knocking of the engine. Not sure whether the dealer or HP or Indian Oil had the messed up fuel quality.
So, I go back to Shell and have my peace of mind.

Filled 29.31l of Shell Unleaded Petrol @ Shell Siddapura on 19/02/2013.
Unit Price was: 75.25 INR per Litre.

Filled up at Shell, Dr. Rajkumar Road today. Price is now Rs 77.85. I was shocked since I was not aware of the hike.

Thumbs down Price goes up again

Unfortunately, Shell have also hiked their petrol prices following the lousy PSU oil companies

A litre of Shell Unleaded (BS-IV) costs an unbearable Rs. 76.56 in Chennai now.

On the positive side, the number of customers at Shell pumps (especially two-wheeler riders) keeps increasing steadily from what I have observed over the months. This is not just due to the much, much better customer service at Shell but also because of the precise quantity of unadulterated fuel sold here. The improved fuel efficiency is more easily noticeable in two-wheelers than in cars.

At 77.85 we here in Bangalore think 76 odd looks cheap

I can only wonder where petrol rates are headed. With diesel prices going up, one would assume petrol would come down as in the past the government was cross subsidizing diesel via petrol prices, but no, it continues going up.

Anyway, still fill up at shell whenever possible as all cars at home petrol. Scary looking at the diesel price there, but gives one a fair indication of what would happen if the subsidy was removed. Mch fewer diesel cars on the road for sure

Petrol prices are deregulated and Shell is a Pvt company, instead of staying competitive and why would/should Shell also increase the prices as soon as the PSU oil companies raise the price?

Filled Shell Unleaded (Normal) at Siddapura circle today at Rs. 77.85/litre. My last tankful was in February at 74.10/litre. Was in for a total surprise with a difference of almost Rs. 4.

Shell diesel is 64.50. Tried the shell diesel this time just to see the difference after one of the buddies suggested it. The difference is very evident, the engine does not sound harsh with the Shell diesel. But the only pain is the difference of 11.86 bucks.

But the monthly 50 paise should get us closer to this price, one its within 1-2 bucks of Shell price, will simply stick on to Shell.

Shell diesel is very hard to find in Pune. 95% of the shell bunks have stopped stocking diesel totally.
If anyone knows where its still available please let me know.
Also with just the remains in the underground tanks at the bunks, i feel the dispensing pumps may pump sediments too.

Would you be visiting Pimpri (Morwadi to be precise) ?? There is a Shell Pump at Morwadi, I will try and check next time I go to get my bike refueled.
I have just started filling Petrol in my bullet from the Shell pump, and the difference is very noticeable. The engine actually feels smoother, and for once, I am not worried about the Pump attendants, cheating me.. All this for 2-3 Rs. Extra per litre !! Awesome I have been there twice and have left with a smile on both occasions.
