Anyone has any hint, of how much amount to be spent to get the toy car ?
IIRC, last time it was Rs.1000/-
Thanks for the update. However few posts back there was an update that it was applicable only if you fill with super unleaded. Any pointers on that?

Ouch, super unleaded !! Is the money difference from normal unleaded, a big amount ? I don't mind if its within Rs.80-81 max.
Or may be if the qualifying amount is less, say Rs1000 only, I don't mind paying a little extra for a branded Ferrari.

They told me that you can get a car by paying Rs 250 if you fill petrol worth Rs 2500.

What !!
You mean, fill petrol (whatever variant) worth Rs.2500/- plus pay Rs.250/- if you want the car ??

Please say I'm wrong !!

PS: My fuel tank, a full tank up amounts to some 2400 or less. That way, am never gonna get that car. Plus, I will never pay for that 1:30 or even smaller car.

By any chance, did u miss an 'OR' in those lines? Perhaps was it "They told me that you can get a car by paying Rs 250 OR if you fill petrol worth Rs 2500."

Whatever, off goes my dream of owning a blazing red ferrari cheap!

Just a query. I fill from Shell Bannerghatta Regular Unleaded. Since it is BS III, it works out to almost Rs. 1 cheaper than Unleaded in the city. But will it affect the functioning of my engine. I run an A-Star.

IIRC, the difference is somewhere in the range of 8-9 rupees.
No idea about the minimum qualifying amount, but the last time I inquired, the attendant told me that the offer will run for 2-3 months.

The information provided by Ambadan is indeed true- we have to fill 25 litres of shell regular petrol/Diesel AND pay Rs. 275 extra to avail the cars. Moreover, the cars are different from the ones they had given earlier.

More information in this thread.

The attendant at the Graphite India outlet told me that you have to fill 25 litres of Normal petrol or diesel or 20 litres of super petrol and you can buy A car for Rs 250 whose MRP is Rs 700. The offer starts tomorrow. I filled 35 litres today.

Could anybody confirm the latest prices for Shell Normal and Super petrol applicable in Bangalore ? I have heard that there could be a rise in prices in a few days.

Hello fellow Bhpians,

Sorry to post a OT query, but can you please educate me why you prefer Shell fuel over HP/BP?

I filled up shell last time which was about a rupee higher than the prices at HP/BP and have got the similar mileage figures/performance

Mr Beat, this is probably because Shell pumps on the whole have well-trained courteous staff who generally don't indulge in short fuelling tricks that are almost endemic at PSU stations.

Having said that there are "trusted" pumps in every city; typically COCO (company owned and operated) outlets. When the price differential gets too much, some of us switch to one of these.

FE and smoothness are better than the average PSU pump but comparable to a good COCO outlet from my experience. Frankly it is the friendly, honest experience that I most value.

The Shell pump at Ambattur Industrial Estate (Godwin) has started a dedicated space to change the engine oil for two-wheelers. Here's a Pulsar going on a nutritious diet of Shell Advance:

The pump attendant says they also change the engine oil for cars. When asked how they do it without a lift/ramp/dugout, he says they use the customer's jack to lift the car up. Needless to say, I was unconvinced.

As suggested on the tent, this facility is meant for bikes and scooters, not cars. Only the Shell pump at Chromepet has the facility to do an oil change for cars. They have a trained oil-change mechanic equipped with all the necessary tools. They also have a stock of oil filters (MICO Bosch & Purolator) for the most common engines at least, but not for all cars.

I started the collection with a Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta. I had to pay 249 extra over my fuel bill. I was eligible as I had filled more than 25 liters of regular petrol.

My son and me assembled it and please find it below:

Nothing to do with fuel, but this happened at a Shell pump, so posting it here.

Went for a quick oil change in my bike on Saturday morning (Shell Mysore Road), and the guy doing the oil change there was a thorough professional. He took his time draining the old oil completely (a lot of mechanics are in a hurry, and need to be reminded to trickle drain the whole lot out), refilled with the new can I'd bought and cleaned up after he finished.

I offered him a tip, which he refused with a polite 'free service, sir!'. I said 'I know, this is for doing a thorough job', he says with a smile, 'wouldn't be free if I took the money. Have a good day.' and walks off. All's not lost in our country yet. After my bad experience on-road a few minutes earlier (posted in bad drivers thread), this guy's attitude made my day.
