I have been filling shell diesel mostly in my fortuner 3.0 and can correlate to black smoke and soot level going up after filling from there. The engine roughness note also increases however on the brighter side, the mileage in city increases by 1-1.5kmpl of shell diesel. Off late after filling from shell diesel the black smoke/soot is much that it leave black soot marks on the bumper.
Now i need to search a good COCO in Koregaon Park in Pune and in and around Kormangla in Bangalore.

Well, good to know the increase in FE but I had a response from another bhpian in the Toyota Innova Crysta thread that his catalytic converter(in the previous gen Innova) went bust and the reason attributed was Shell diesel. So better to play it safe

Got this SMS on my phone a few minutes ago.
Quote:
Dear Shell Customer, as per GoI notice private petrol pumps can not accept INR500 & INR1000 currency notes from 9-nov. We regret the inconvenience caused
Today morning when I was coming to office, I saw that a Shell fuel station was closed. I was not happy because even though GOI told that petrol stations must accept 500/1000 rupees currency today. After this SMS, I once again went through the press release of RBI and it is clearly mentioned that Public sector Petrol stations will accept 500/1000 rupees currency. Then I thought they could have opened but for only card payments. But I guess Shell has closed to avoid any problems with public who fail to understand this and probably create issues which is fair enough.

EDIT:
And just after I post this, I got another SMS as quoted below. So now they'll have to explain people who have failed to notice that only Public sector Petrol stations can accept 500/1000 rupees currency today.
For people like me who always fill fuel on credit card/Shell Cash card, it is good that Shell is open.
Quote:
Dear Customer, We are accepting cash notes below INR 500 denominations, Shell Cash cards & Bank Cards for payments. Looking forward to serve you

The Bannerghatta Road outlet of Shell is accepting payment only in the form of cards. They are not accepting cash in any form (irrespective of the denomination).
