Since mid 90s an additional 1 rupee cess is levied on Petrol / Diesel sold in Bangalore city limits , This cess was initially to collect money for ELRTS ( Scrapped) and now metro rail construction.

Filled up at shell an hour ago. Old Madras Road (before Big bazaar) outlet. Normal Unleaded petrol @ 59.50. Tank-full took in 25.21 ltrs. For this, the extra difference between PSU pump (58.06) and shell is a mere Rs 37 - completely worth given the peace of mind and assured quality

Completely agree to this, and there is enough space for cars and no rush, which makes it even better. Then only little annoying thing- each time you land up there the attendant will ask- saar full tank? I told him we can opt for what we want, let us say!

Default Rs. 100 per litre

If this goes with the same venom for couple of years ahead we would soon see Petrol Head filling at Rs 100/lr.

Can't be too far away for that I believe, oh my god !

I always been a petrol head with RX135, zen and now looking for OHC.

Where will be the vtec's and baleno's, Palio's, zens's those days..the performance factor in each of us will soon dry unless we too are financially revoked by our respective companies...

No wonder slowly and steadily, Toyota folks are moving to launch a Diesel Corolla Altis. Hmm..thinking one step ahead is it.

**Mod's feel free to move to appropriate thread in case.

Price diff between diesel and petrol will come down and even then, the whole economics does not benefit a diesel owner unless running is high( enough said on that already). Public transport will become more popular and will force people to do things like car pool, which will end up good for the overall public. Anyways, focus should be to earn more, forget what we cannot control

Even though the Petrol prices are "freed" from govt control, I doubt if it will remain "free" if the prices go up beyond a point. It's quite likely that the govt will intervene if it goes beyond some limit (say Rs.75).

Anyone else facing this problem?

Default Shell to sell outlets

Read in rediff today that Shell plans to sell out around 20 of 80 retail outlets they got. IOC and BPCL in discussion to buy the same it seems. The decision is due to lose incurred in retail domain by shell as per the report.
The rediff article can be accessed @ http://business.rediff.com/report/20...il-outlets.htm

Price difference is more than Rs. 7 and still doesn't make sense to shift back to Shell yet.

Going by the discussion happening in this thread, guess Shell is retailing fuel at different cost price at different locations.
I remember reading the difference between PSU and Shell is very minimal in Bangalore, but its high in Chennai and Hyderabad

Unhappy

Guys I was just wondering, from what I hear, US fuel prices are determined by free market mechanism, just as in our country right now. To the best of my knowledge fuel prices are 2.99 to the gallon. that is (2.99*47) Rs. 140 for 3.7 litres, which again translates to Rs. 37.83/lt. Then why do people of India have to pay Rs. 55/lt?

It is due to the high amount of taxes and some cost is incurred in cross subsidizing poor man's fuel kerosene.

I filled at Shell today, its priced at Rs. 59.50 for the normal petrol. There is not much difference here compared to other PSUs like mentioned earlier. Its sad to hear though that they plan to sell some of their bunks since only recently were they massively expanding their numbers.

After filling twice at with Shell regular, I've decided to take my chances with IOC Jalahalli. The mileage had gone down considerably. The way the fuel gauge needle went down was nothing short of alarming and I know theres nothing wrong with my car. Anyone else facing the same problem?
