Thanks buddy. Am really interested to fill up Diesel in an Essar or a Reliance pump and see how it works in my car. Shell Diesel, like always, is like a rocket fuel - I feel a marked difference. Want to see if the same is there in Essar / Reliance.

There is an Essar one near Medavakkam on Velachery Main Road.
Dont remember seeing the Reliance Pump in chennai. Remember my friend saying there is one in Avadi not sure.

The issues is for the new entrants its very difficult to find a location/ site within the city to set up a pump. Thats why chances are you will find them more in the suburbs.

You are welcome ! I used to "fill up" at A1 plazas when they were in vogue on the highways, though the customer experience was not like in Shell, given time they would have got there. My Indica did perform well with that fuel, mileage was also higher compared to the PSU fuel.

Can someone confirm what is the price difference between Shell and the other Govt owned Petrol retailers post de-regulation.

If its minimal I am thinking of shifting to Shell

I Still find a difference in petrol prices between Davangere to Blore. Davangere is lower by Rs. 1 approx.

Any reason why the same ?

Hi Asdon, i was referring to the prices of petrol in the Shell outlets !

Cant understand why do they have a difference of 1 Rs in Davangere ? (lower than Blore) I asked the manager there but he had no clue !

In Chennai the difference in regular fuel between PSU & Shell is about Rs.5.50. Unfortunately Shell is costlier in Chennai as compared to Bangalore while petrol in PSU pumps is cheaper by about 2 rupees cheaper in Chennai.

Saw BPCL Speed price at 60+, just filled normal shell at 59.50, makes much more sense. Normal PSU fuel is bad, for once the fuel hike has done us good(people like me) as shell is next to my home almost and i just enjoy the experience there( other than the attendants repeating like a parrot- saar full tank?)

One more thing they keep repeating when you say to fill normal petrol

- Saar, Super try maadi

Do they get any commission if one fills super instead of normal ?

Yes , premium fuels are costlier and hence there is a greater incentive and commision given to promote such fuel by oil companies.

In Mysore Shell costs 58.50 and IOC is 57.03. Now i have become a regular in Shell and so does my brother

But don't know why the difference between bangy and mys. Is it anything to do Euro IV standards....?

There are 2 reasons that I can think of: The transportation cost and the additional infrastructure cess in Bangalore city. But I'm sure the quality/standard of fuel is the same in both the cities.
