This may not help much. The bulk of the diversion is through a fake invoice, so the supply will appear in the Consumer book, except you will not be the recipient.

So in Bangalore the price at HP pumps is 49 approximately. I always wondered how BPCL rates are more and HP is less by few paise. Anyways I think its high time for State Govts to reduce taxes on this precious commodity to reduce the burden on the consumer. But that's just wishful thinking.

Anyhow, the bottom line is drag races at traffic signals will be less as hopefully folks will try to extract as much mileage as they can from every drop of this liquid gold.

AFAIK it will continue as usual. Gas cylinders were subsidized. Piped gas was at the regular unsubsidised cost so ideally should not be affected

Premium diesel rates raised by whopping Rs.19.55 per litre.

Quote:
The government, on Thursday, had raised diesel price by Rs 5.63 per litre and allowed the oil companies to price premium or branded petrol and diesel at market prices.

Subsequently, the premium or branded petrol in Delhi is being sold at Rs 77.58 per litre from today as against Rs 71.22 previously.

Similarly, premium or branded diesel is being sold at Rs 65.81 per litre as against Rs 46.26 previously, industry sources said.

I was just about to post the same. In what comes as a shocking news, even premium petrol to be increased by 6.xx rupees. If petrol is currently being sold at market price after the excise duty cut, why is there a need to increase its premium cousin's price by 6.xx ?

I wonder if there will be any takers for branded fuel now or this segment will completely cease to exist in short time?

I don't understand why they are labeling these premium fuel as Branded? Are the normal Petrol and Diesel that we use is Unbranded?

Until Maruti came on the scene petrol was available in 87 and 93 octanes.The price difference was just a few paise per litre.
After Maruti srtormed the Indian car market 87 was changed to 90 octane.Even after that the price difference was just a few paise.
One fine finance minister change the pricing structure of 93 on and made it very expensive.(At that point I stopped using it for my Fiat).His logic was that it was used for the affluent class for their fancy cars.
The reasoning continues and hence the disparity.

I believe the branded fuel are the category which includes the additives and possibly higher cetane numbers. They are being sold under the brand Speed, XtraPremium or Power. I think the base diesel price at all fuel pumps will remain the same. I am yet to visit a filling station to confirm this news.

If this is indeed true, the luxury and high performance diesel vehicles where premium diesel is the recommended fuel will be the most affected. But anyways if they can afford a premium vehicle, they can also afford the premium fuel for it.

That is correct. But most premium manufacturers such as BMW, VW group et al actually recommend ordinary diesel and petrol without additives, small this will do is lead to the death of these products.

Recent Development: BMW has a petrol additive available at its shops. 1 bottle for a tank full. States it has Octane boosting properties as well as helps improve the detergent properties of Engine Oil.

Recommended for users of petrol fuelled cars from non metros/up country drivers or wherever the quality is doubtful.

I personally don't have any problems paying 5rs extra for the fuel. However, I'm worried about how this translates to. All the commodities, etc are bound to raise. Not a good time.

Ridiculous price rise for the premium fuel!!

Eagerly waiting for the upa to get off the power.

Honda also recommends normal petrol. Now what we understand is that the additives are put in at the distribution level, so let them die. I will suggest use System D or G once in a while. I stopped Premium once we with BS-III and IV. Earlier with BSII you would not get 91RON in these towns.
