Default Trusted Petrol Pump: Coimbatore

Hi,

I have been filling fuel in one of the following pumps regularly for about 8 years now. They are of Good quality and right quantity. Wanted to share this with the team so that anybody passing through Coimbatore may get benefited out of it.

Vedanayagam - IOC - Saibaba Kovil, Mettupalayam Road
CLOA - BP - Ukkadam
CLOA - BP - Gandhi Park
Annamar Agencies - BP - DB Road, RS Puram
Suresh Agencies - IOC - Thadagam Road

I have not faced any issues like low mileage, mis-firing or Spark Plug failure.

Regards,
Suresh

Shanthi social services - IOC Pump - Trichy road Singanallur - Arguably one of the best

Is Ram sons good? I have heard quite a lot of bad stuff bout them esp. with regards to the quantity.
I usually fill in ELGI bunk at trichy road, only thing is they don accept credit cards :(
and the BP in Avinashi Road near to Nilgris is also good.
The IOC at RNpuram is also good, i fill up sometimes there

I usually fill at Ramsons and have not got any problems. How do i check the quantity?

Ah, yes. I did have a problem there once, but with using the petro card in their so called In & Out store. BP gives most points to money spent there, but these morons simply say that their machines don't work. I then went up and spoke with the manager, he said they got nothing to do as they have outsourced the store to Tulasi Pharmacy. He then gave me contacts of few top guns at BP and asked me to complain about it. I am yet to.


Even the IOC opposite Nilgiris is good, not the Anna Selai one, the one further down, which is a COCO outlet.

Mileage drops!
I used to fill for my Kine there and have not felt much of a difference since it gives low mileage in any case
But then my friends did say that drop in mileage, and i reckon it has to be the quantity

few additions to the list

NM & Co BPLC, Dr.Nanjappa Road and Ukkadam
BPCL COCO, near Shanthi gears, Trichy Road
HPCL opposite to Ramakrishna kalyana mandapam.

But none can come close to Shanthi gears by any means!

BPCL COCO, near shanthi gears, Trichy road seems to be mostly empty. Service has also been poor.
