The attendants at the Baner BP Pump (opposite HDFC Bank) will try to cheat you using the distraction and start filling gas routine.

Also the Gaikwad HP Pump in Aundh (Opp Axis Bank) do the same trick at times.

Does anyone know if the the pumps have reduced prices from today?

Read in the newpapers that petrol and diesel are down by about a rupee a litre within Pune city limits, thanks to reduction of octroi.

Wow! Thats news to me. Which paper has this, Dot?
Is this limited to Pune city limits only, or does it include PCMC as well?
Need to check in Hinjewadi, though i doubt this would happen, as hinjewadi is outside Pune Octroi limits.

Thanks for pointing this out, Dot.

Hey DOT, here is the link.
PMC panel reduces petrol, diesel octroi by 1 pc - Indian Express

Though, it does say that the octroi and both petrol and Diesel has been brought down to 1% by the PMC but will only be "implemented after approval of the civic general body and the state government...."

IIRC, PMC charges 2% octroi. If the proposal is to bring it down to 1%, then it is a saving of Re. 1 per litre. If they abolished/ canceled it altogether, it would mean a saving of Rs. 2 per litre.

It seems that the proposal is only for Re. 1, so I hope this is fully passed by the relevant authorities. Apparently in Rajasthan prices have been reduced (LPG reduced by something like Rs. 35, not sure about petrol)

I hope the central government takes note and does something of more significance.

Default Petrol Filling experience at Shell Bunk

Fuel Bunk : Shell
Location: MIDC Chinchwad, next to Wonder Cars Showroom near KSB Chowk
Experience
I went to fill in fuel at shell bunk even after knowing that it would be costly (based on my previous experiences from Hinjewadi bunk),
As usual we entered the bunk and a person enquired "Petrol / Diesel", we replied "Petrol" and he guided us to the Petrol Counter, the lady quickly greeted us with a smile, i smiled back but then my eyes went onto fuel rates and it showed Rs 75.50, the smile almost vanished from my face because it was Rs 6 costlier than the IOC bunk where i usually fill her up,
But i knew the quality / quantity assurance is always there, so i said "Fill for Rs 2000"
The lady quickly reset the meter and set it to Rs 2000 and then asked me to confirm the Zero, once i nodded my head, she started filling and once the amount was reached she neatly pulled out the nozzle without much spill of fuel on car
before she asked, i said "I will pay by card", so she pointed me towards office cabin
I went in and again i was greeted with Namaste, i produced the printout and she processed the payment

My final take is, if you want to be respected as an individual and are willing to pay the extra premium for the same then visit SHELL, but for people like me who can live without that, i suggest the extra money is not really worth it given we already have decent alternatives in Pune / Pimpri; given on this very thread

Is this the price for their Premium now? If so it has reduced from Rs78 odd, which was the rate about two months back.

Yes, Shell does treat you well. They will normally clean up the windscreen. For a full tank sometimes they would inspect all fluids in the car for free and top up stuff like coolant and wiper fluids. I remember purchasing some very well done miniature Ferrari models from the now defunct Chandan Nagar outlet. Purchasing from Shell is like purchasing a smart phone for gazillions when all you need is to call and sms.

The service at shell does indeed make you feel special.
Whenever i have gone though, they bring out the check like in a hotel, which has my credit card slip, card etc and i pay it standing by the car itself.
Now with their reduced prices though it isn't so much a pinch as the earlier 10 Rupee price difference which literally made you pull out your hair.
But one thing a few of us have noticed regarding our Civic's is that they love shell petrol and infact consume more of the same.

Many moons ago, when I had a petrol car, I used to fill her up at Shell only. Chandan nagar outlet was a bliss. No traffic. Decent staff and mainly good quality fuel. Any idea, as to why they shut shop?

Also, I did check the prices of fuel at Hinjewadi. The new prices are not in effect in Hinjewadi. Much like I thought. It is only for bunks in Pune Octroi limits.
Today's TOI has the story in detail.

No customers. I used see only a few two wheelers line up there; as these guys probably care less if prices is 4/5 rupees here and there since they normally take one liter or 100 rupee worth of fuel.

tell me about it. but i guess these Civic's know it's something really expensive and hence consume it like it's some fine wine.

A difference of Rs. 5 per lit translates to 50 x 5 = Rs. 250 for a tank full for me.
Here, the difference is even more.
I wouldn't really spend that extra when I have probably the same fuel quality for a trusted petrol pump (with good service) - e.g. Autolines.

But that is just me.

BTW: Is there a list of known good petrol bunks along Pune Bangalore route?
