I think we need to recalculate the list of trusted pumps left in Pune since it appears the list must have gone down from the time this thread started

Hey Guys,
Can anyone tell me which of the Hinjewadi Pumps are open till late in the night ? Sometimes I leave office after 11 pm or even later, only to realise I am running almost dry and no pumps on the way to fill up at, all the way till home in Kothrud.

I don't have an answer for your question. But have a suggestion. I generally fill up once the indicator reaches the mid way point. This takes care of any eventualities and unforeseen circumstances.

Ojas, i think the BP pump in Phase 2 is open till late. Not sure though. I need to refuel today, shall check with them and update this thread accordingly. Also, shall check with the company cabwallahs. They would have specefic answers related to your query. Shall update those details as well.

Hey thanks for the response guys!
Yesterday found the IOC pump open after 11. Filled up at 66.4 Rupees a liter. I should start an official hate campaign against Maruti now for not having a Swift ZDi in its portfolio.

Maybe I should go to Hinjewadi to tank up; should be less of a nightmare on a Sunday I would hope.
I filled up at 68.5 in Pune this morning! Of course I have no one to blame but myself; anyway Honda is nowhere close to getting a diesel

By the way the guy at the Kasat petrol pump (near Harshal Hall/ Karisma society; opp McDonalds) tried the good old trick of asking if I wanted a receipt just as another was trying to begin pumping fuel. I didnt answer him till the tank was closed and then laughed in his face; dont be surprised if you found someone grumpy there today

Ok, as promised, here are the bunks that are open till late.
Agreed, most of them are not good pumps, but then in case of emergencies they help.

1. BP bunk in Phase 2 open till 11:30PM
2. IOC Pump Phase 1 open till 11:00PM
3. HP Pump Phase 1 (next to McDonalds) open till 11:00 PM
4. Shell Highway Pump open till 11:00PM
5. Dont know which company bunk, but the one afer Wakad Bridge on the right, is open till 11:00PM

Hope this helps.

People, if you know of any others, please add them to the list. It may be of help to anyone of us anytime.

Shell Pump at Hinjewadi seems to be feeling the heat of the competition what with 2 new pumps starting operation. Yesterday received an SMS from them about reduced petrol price to Rs.70.43. Do not track Petrol Prices at Shell so not sure of the percentage reduction. I hope the same has been done for diesel. Would be filling up there today and would check that out.

Correction in my earlier post. Petrol is actually Rs.70.95 per litre.

Filled up diesel today morning and was happy to see a reduction of Rs.4 in it as well. Yippeee!!! Small pleasures considering that it is still expensive compared to other bunks.

Shell - here I come. It's been a while since I've tanked up there. Of course, sole reason is the price differential. When I was tanking up there before, I was getting at least a 1km increase in kmpl figures.

Thank you shell! Will fill up on my way back today. Only problem is, I guess they have put dividers on that road, and will have to take a U-turn further down the road (near the wine shop).

Simple- fill up on your way in! I did this morning.

The Shell HJW pump is the *only* pump in Pune that I trust unreservedly now. Unleaded is now 70.95 and Super 73.45. 4 rupee drop in price across the board, an attendant informed me.

Th shell pump at Warje is VERY GOOD! They have consistently delivered very good quality fuel without any scams whatsoever. I regularly fill up there now.

Is the extra price that they charge worth it?
I am comparing it the fuel quality with that of Autolines at Shivaji Nagar.
