Did you go the Hosur Road Shell? Today morning when I went there it was deserted with only one pump operational.

I am filling in Shell from last 1 week already 4 fills and experience is good as usual. Alto sounds smooth with Shell Petrol. I could see the differance in couple of refills. Last week first time when I started Shell I have made sure I filled only 3 ltrs of Petrol and drove 15km and then did Tank Full so old Petrol get mixed with Shell fully.

I hope oil price stay same so I can continue to use Shell. I noticed only 10% increase of vehicles in Shell bunks. It should pick up in coming days i guess.

Regards,

Ravi.

So what is the latest price of Shell Petrol in Bangalore? Rs 59.95?

Since the govt. seems reluctant to drop prices, Shell can actually drop prices a little more and make a lot of money in the next few weeks. I remember the good old days when the bunks around Shell (near Iskcon) were deserted.

The latest price in Navi Mumbai is Rs. 57.95 (Shell Super). As expected it has come down with further cooling down of global crude prices. The Lancer loves Shell Super, its flying!

Did They drop further?
In Bangalore regular petrol is 57.17 and premiums like Speed is 61.30. So now Shell makes a better choice.

In Bangalore Shell Super retails for 59.95. It is a nice move by Shell to position the price between IOC/BPCL/HPCL regular and premiums.

Just a query about Shell. Is it OK to mix regular and Shell petrol. I don't get Shell here in Trichy and will be in Chennai for a week this December. Tempted to try out Shell when I am there. But that would mean mixing Shell and regular there and then mixing regular again with Shell when I return

Can anyone tell me where are the shell petrol pumps in Mumbai. It would be really good to fill up petrol at any shell outlet as they have better petrol than our local pump walas and the best thing is it is cheaper.

It seems that Shell petrol price (59.65) is same across the states unlike other petrol bunks.

I wish Shell starts selling ordinary petrol also. I don't mind paying even 1 buck extra for it.

I thought Shell Petrol is way higher than regular petrol? This price is of regular petrol ( IOC,BP etc)
