^^Yes. But I don't think the fuel from Shell is any different. 5% (now 10%?) blend of ethanol is mandatory in major cities afaik.

The shells mnager told me that, their fuel does not contain any ethanol and that gives the extra smoothness and feel :-) .

I have no way to validate his claim , but accepted it since i like their fuel and fill petrol from them.

For diesel , I go to BP anyways ..for the 7-8 rs/l price difference.

Shell's Diesel > BP/HP/ Other Govt owned pumps by 7-8 rs/l approx ...that's what I meant.

Govt pumps of IOC/BP/HP etc are at almost same rate , small difference owing to tax/locality/ octroi.

I filled Shell normal on Sunday from the pump near Jakkur flying club @ 74.40! I dont know the rationale behind their increase in price (just because PSU's hiked the price?) and also realized that there is difference in price in different Shell petrol pumps in bangalore!

Great to hear Shell is costing lesser than PSUs. Looks like our Vijay Mallya's dream of Liquor costing lesser than Petrol has atlast been fulfilled..
@Mods, I know its a bit But feels so miserable at the current state of parity b/w fuel and other liquids in our country.

Hey you will not believe it. Even I got my tank full on 16th evening around 6PM. Now I need not worry for another 2 weeks of city drive.
